National Child Abuse Hotline
The Division of Family Services investigates reports of child abuse, neglect and dependency. If an investigation determines that protective services are needed, the Division provides home-based assistance such as counseling, family preservation services, parent aides, transportation and shelter care. When in-home services are not sufficient to ensure child safety, the Division provides placement in a stable alternative setting. When children cannot be reuinted with their families, the Division places children into adoptive families.
