Our Services


Ongoing Unit
Adoption Unit



If a family is identified as being in need of services, by either an investigator or the Juvenile court, they are assigned to a caseworker from one of our three services units. The caseworker will  works with the entire family to help implement the resources needed  to strengthen the family unit. Every effort is made to help the family implement the needed changes  to make sure the children remains safe in the home environment.  If a child’s safety is compromised, the child will be removed from the home. When this happens, the case worker helps the family identify what steps need to be taken to reduce the risk  so the child may be able to return home.
