What Does Children Services Do?
Children Services is responsible for the care and protection of abused, neglected, and dependent children. Through our services we strive to teach, assist, and enable families to build a strong foundation for their future and for their safety. Children Services' job is to make sure children are safe. We believe that the best place for a child is with his or her family as long as the child is safe. If a child is not safe, we work with the family to change that. We know that parents want to do the best they can for their child and we help families become stronger by providing services and working with parents.
