Ongoing Protective Services

Children Services provides ongoing protective services  to families and children when risk has been identified through an investigative process and it is determined that supportive services are necessary to alleviate or reduce the level of risk to the children.  These services are designed to both preserve families as well as reunify children with their families when risk is determined to be imminent and removal from the custodian became necessary.

Case management services are provided by the assigned caseworker beginning when the case is opened for ongoing services.  The worker coordinates services for the family based on a case plan that is developed from concerns identified in the investigative process.  Through this coordination many services are referred out to other community provider such as medical, educational and counseling agencies.

General counseling is provided throughout the life of the case by the caseworker.  This should not be confused with therapeutic counseling that a licensed therapist provides but is beneficial when helping families and children to cope with stressful situations they encounter throughout the life of the case.  An example of this is general advice and recommendations given by the worker as they meet with the family to discuss concerns, goals, etc.

Agency staff provides transportation for families for many different circumstances.  Examples include but are not limited to family visitation, medical and counseling appointments, and parenting classes.

Staff coordinates family visits which facilitate reunification of a child who has been removed from the custody and care of a parent.  In some situations, these visits are supervised when the level of risk places the child at risk.

Substitute care is provided by the agency for those children who have been removed from the parent(s) due to them being at risk of imminent harm or danger.  Examples of this include foster homes, group homes, residential facilities, and approved relative homes.  These settings are all approved or licensed through a formal process.
