Children Services Mission Statement

The Shelby County Department of Job and Family Services, Children Services Division, is dedicated to securing safe, permanent care within their own homes, communities, and cultures.

The agency recognizes that the primary responsibility of the child welfare system is to protect children from mal-treatment; and that the best way of meeting this responsibility is, whenever possible, to strengthen families to protect their own children.  This not only protects children but also prevents the consequences of separation from out-of-home placement.

This approach encompasses the following values:

  • Children have the right to grow up with their family
  • Children have the right to be nurtured and protected in a stable environment
  • When children are at risk of harm,  the community has the responsibility to intervene
  • Families are our community’s most important resources and therefore must be respected, valued,  and encouraged to build on their existing strengths

Shelby County Ohio Job Family Children Services Mission Statement The community must support families in raising and caring for children.
