In partnership with the Department of Children and Family Services, the Department insures that individuals/families in crisis receive specialized services for children and families under extreme stress. Services are directed toward assuring a permanent, secure and nurturing living environment for children. To that end, services such as outpatient treatment, social adjustment and rehabilitation, unmarried parent services, protective intervention and adoption or guardianship services are provided to facilitate continuous care in a consistent, nurturing environment.
