How do these children fall under the agency's care?
Children come to the attention of the Juvenile Court and are ordered placed in out-of-home care when they cannot remain safely with their own families because of abuse or neglect. The laws governing the reasons children may be removed from their birth families are established and monitored by the State and Federal governments. Dependent children in out-of-home care rely on Social Services Agency staff and foster parents working as a team to provide temporary, safe, and loving home environments.
