Child Safety

Keeping children safe while supporting families

Making sure children are safe and families have the resources they need is central to our work at the Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS). We believe that children do best growing up in a family. We are working with partners across Oregon to transform the child welfare system. Our goal is to keep more children at home and in their communities, provide help early, and reduce stress and trauma.
