Keeping youth and families in the center
What is DHS Doing to Keep Children and Youth Safe?
DHS believes that the best place for youth is with his or her family of origin when it is safe. The Unified Child and Youth Safety Implementation Plan was developed to address identified gaps in the Child Welfare Program and child caring systems throughout the State. This implementation plan responds to the independent review of child and youth safety conducted by Public Knowledge between February and September 2016.
