Welcome to the Dependent Children's Services Division website!
Our mission is to advocate on a statewide level for appropriate services and safe permanent homes for children in foster care and to ensure timely permanency for these children by:
- Evaluating and improving dependency case processing in the juvenile court
- Recruiting and training community-based volunteers who advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children
- Acting as a referral source to the community for information regarding foster care, adoption, parent assistance, volunteer opportunities, volunteer training, and the child welfare and juvenile court processes
