Child Protective Services

The Office of Children and Youth accepts all incoming reports of suspected child abuse and neglect, ensures the safety of children residing in the reported household, investigates the validity of reports and provides services to families dealing with child abuse and neglect issues.

Adolescent/Ungovernable Services

Children and Youth staff provide assessment and casework services to families if a parent contacts the agency with concerns regarding their 10-18 year old child who has committed a specific act or acts of habitual disobedience of the reasonable and lawful commands of his/her parent, guardian or custodian.

Truancy Intervention Services
 Children and Youth staff provide and coordinate services to eliminate truancy and foster educational success. These services are provided, if necessary, following a School District’s attempts to engage the child and family and referral to the Magisterial District Judge to address the truancy issues.   

Foster/Resource Care and Adoption Services
 Most children are served at home and families remain intact.  When safety prohibits children from remaining at home, out-of-home placement may be necessary. Children and Youth staff recruit, study, train and inspect foster homes to ensure the safety of the children residing there.

Mandated and Permissive Reporter Training and Education
 Children and Youth Staff provide educational meetings to mandated reporters of child abuse and neglect, as well as attend community forums to increase child abuse and neglect awareness and foster parent recruitment.
