Suspect child abuse/neglect? REPORT IT!
The mission of Children and Youth Services (CYS) is to provide for the immediate safety and protection of children, to keep children with their own families whenever possible, to provide temporary, substitute care for children when necessary and to reunite children with their families as quickly as possible after placement.
CYS investigates all allegations of child abuse and/or neglect, adolescents who are at severe risk due to their behavior or that of their parent(s) as mandated by state law.
In all cases CYS provides case management, counseling, and related supportive services to abused and/or neglected children from birth up to age 18, and their families. We work directly with children and families in times of crisis while keeping with the agency's mission/goals. The agency offers services to stabilize and offers rehabilitative services to reunite the family.
We are guided by the Child Protection Services Law (CPSL)
Delaware County CYS offices serve families according to the school district in which the child resides.
