PRESS RELEASE
For immediate release
Sharon Russell, County Manager

ONSLOW COUNTY, NC — October 5, 2020. Out of an abundance of caution, the Board of Commissioners regular meeting scheduled for tonight, October 5, 2020, has been cancelled. Several of our Board members and other community members were in attendance at an event with Senator Thom Tillis last week. Onslow County Government places the health of our Board, our citizens and staff as a top priority. Canceling the meeting this evening is the most prudent decision.

SCAM ALERT! Text Message Scam Targeting Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) Recipients!

It has been brought to our attention that some FNS recipients are receiving text messages on their phone that states, “your FNS case is about to close and to click on a link to keep it open”. The text may also state, “you were chosen to receive food stamps or SNAP”. This is a “SCAM” in order to obtain the FNS recipients’ personal information. Recipients should not reply to the text, delete the text right away.

As a reminder, FNS recipients should never share social security numbers, bank information, or FNS electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card or PIN number with individuals or organizations that they do not know. If they are not sure about a suspicious request for FNS information they need to contact their local agency.

If you have any questions, please contact your DSS case manager.

Our Adult Daycare is open from 7:30am-5:00pm to provide supervised care for adults in a home like atmosphere. This program strives to help each person maintain individual dignity, self-identity and enhance his/her quality of life.

CAP/DA is the Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults and is Medicaid funded. CAP/DA serves as an alternative to nursing home care for adults who wish to remain in their homes and communities through supplementing existing formal and informal services.

In-Home is the program designed to enable older adults to remain independent in their homes when for various reasons they become unable to meet their household, nutrition and/or personal care needs. One of the goals of In-Home is to help prevent unnecessary hospitalization or long term care placement.
