Children & Family Services provides safety and protection for children who are at risk of abuse and/or neglect. Children and Family Services social workers help strengthen families to protect their children from harm and reduce the likelihood of recurring child abuse and neglect. Social workers and parents work together to develop a plan which identifies necessary services and supports to address the family’s needs. The ultimate goal is to return the child to a safe and permanent home.
