General Information


The mission of the Department of Children, Youth and Families is to utilize high quality, comprehensive social services that strengthen the family's ability to provide for the safety and well-being of each child. 

About us

The care of dependent and/or neglected children is a shared responsibility. The family is seen as the primary source for the care and nurturing of children by providing for the physical, emotional, and economic support needed. 

This agency intervenes to provide those services which cannot be provided by families, neighbors, friends, and the community.
