Child Abuse & Neglect

Child Protective Services - Ongoing Services

CPS Ongoing Services are provided once a CPS case is transferred from the Intake Social Worker to a CPS Ongoing Social Worker. The goal of the ongoing Social Worker is to assist the family to successfully complete the conditions of the court order or voluntary agreement. Assistance includes supervision and case management services including oversight of out-of-home placement situations. The level of involvement, frequency of contact, and types of services depend on the needs of the child and family, results of the family assessment and development of the case plan, the potential for further child maltreatment, what has been court ordered, and evaluation of progress toward goals. There may be referrals, as appropriate, to community-based services.
