 Our Mission

To protect children and youth from abuse and neglect through protective and preventive services designed to keep families together whenever possible and to assure children's safety, permanency and well-being. To prevent child abuse, neglect and exploitation; to ensure that all abused, neglected or otherwise dependent children are protected from further abuse and neglect in their own home or some other permanent home; and to provide for the well-being of children during substitute care. The agency is responsible to find permanency for children if they are not to return home. The Agency’s Core values are respect for families, mutual respect with colleagues and teamwork.
Because each child is precious and entitled to protection, security and the essentials of life, we will support and empower families, promote more direct community participation in our services and work in concert with other child and family service organizations. We will also create a work environment that encourages excellence and creativity, fosters best practice and supports professional development, all while exercising leadership in advocacy for services to children and families.  

 Our Vision

To provide social services to meet the needs of citizens of Northampton County to further health and independence.
