Children, Youth and Families

Protective and Foster Care

This unit focuses on children who have been abused or neglected by their families. Due to the abuse and neglect, many of these children may need to be removed from their home and placed in foster care for a period of time. Some parents may not have the ability to care for their children for adoption.

The Juvenile Unit serves pre-delinquents, Persons In Need of Supervision (PINS) and adjudicated youth through social work services, investigations, oversight of the alternative sentencing programs and pre/post planning for those remanded to the YRC.
