Children & Youth

As mandated by the Public Welfare Code, this agency provides services to children, ages 0-18, aimed at maintaining and increasing family stability, keeping children with their families, and placing the child in a temporary home when necessary. Program staff works closely with private social service agencies, school districts, the Drug & Alcohol Program, and the Mental Health/Mental Retardation Program, and law enforcement agencies. They are in contact with these agencies in referrals, service planning, counseling, protective and adoption services, shelter and foster care, and institutional placement.
