Children’s Services

It takes a village to raise a child

Children’s Services partners with families, communities, and agencies to help children thrive and find the best outcomes – be it reunification with birth parents or finding permanent homes with adoptive families. We invite open-hearted adults to join our village as either adoptive or foster parents. To learn more about our services and partners visit the links below. To report suspected abuse, call our 24-hour hotline at 1-800-442-4918 or click here.

The Quality Parenting Initiative (QPI)
QPI ensures every child removed from their home is cared for by a skilled, nurturing foster family. QPI also prioritizes helping the child maintain connections with their birth family.
