  • Child Abuse and Neglect

    Child Protective Services staff investigates reports of child abuse or neglect and provides services to protect the child and strengthen the family. Every child needs to be treasured, protected and nurtured. Unfortunately, some parents can't -- or won't -- care for their children. When they neglect or abuse them, someone must step in to ensure the children's safety. That's the job of DFCS, along with the police and the courts. Content Detail
