Our mission is to extend supportive services and resources which will provide for the essential needs of our customers.  In partnership with public and private entities, we initiate efforts to enhance the employment potential of all County residents and promote self-sufficiency for each individual.  We use a teamwork approach to achieving our goals, and in doing so will treat each other and those we serve with dignity and respect.

We serve all children, adults, and families who need protection from abuse, neglect, and exploitation; financial and economic support; their family relationships established, nurtured and continuum of education, prevention, and intervention services; strengths-based family assessment, direct services; and advocacy.  Through the wise use of community resources and collaboration with the others, we provide a flexible process that promotes self-sufficiency while preserving dignity, privacy, and physical and emotional well-being.
