Our Mission & Values


Our Mission:

The mission of Children’s services is to protect endangered children, preserve and strengthen their families, and develop alternative family settings. Services as mandated by law and regulation, will be provided in the least intrusive manner with a family centered focus. This mission is accomplished in collaboration with the family, a wide variety of public and private agencies and members of the community.

Our Values:

  • Children have the right to have their basic needs met.

  • Delivery of services shall be competent, consistent, fair, simple, direct, and clear.

  • Children are best raised in a family. Quality services are non-punitive and non-judgmental.

  • All people have a basic right to be treated with respect, honesty and dignity.

  • Services will be delivered with the lowest necessary level of intervention.

  • All people are best served by participating in making decisions that impact their lives.

  • Interactions shall reflect knowledge of and sensitivity to cultural and ethnic diversity.

  • All people have the potential for growth, development, and change.
