DHS Moves Into New Gulfport Offices

GULFPORT (WLOX) -- A state agency is celebrating a major step in hurricane recovery. Wednesday, movers began transferring furniture and equipment from trailers into the newly renovated Department of Human Services offices in Gulfport.

DHS officials say Katrina put more than two feet of water in the building. The director says she expects the move will help the 130 employees to do their jobs more effectively.

"We have been in 15 trailers spread out here and we will have a central desk. Each division has their own desk where they come into the building. We will have a central phone system. Things will definitely work a lot better," Director Carolyn Deiorio said.

DHS officials say the moving process will not disrupt any of the services they provide.
