Allen County Children Services
Our goal is simple. Protect children.
At the core of it all, our agency is focused on one thing: to protect the children of Allen County by supporting and strengthening families in partnership with the community.
To this end, we are mandated by law and committed to investigating all reports of child abuse, neglect, and dependency. We provide casework staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through emergency on-call services. Our team responds to emergency situations within one hour when a child is reported to be at imminent risk.
We also provide supportive services to children and their families to eliminate abuse and neglect of children. These services include substitute care for abused, neglected and dependent children who cannot safely remain in their homes as well as permanent homes through adoption, for those children who cannot be reunited with their parents or legal custodian.
