Child Protective Services
We receive referrals for child protective services, which includes physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, or emotional damage. We also provide outreach to families with concerns about children and family functioning.
To make a report of child abuse or neglect, call (715) 258-6300.
Youth Justice services are provided to youth who are referred and their families which promote safety for the youth, their family, and the community. Services focus on safety, accountability, and rehabilitation using evidence-based practices and supervision. We work in partnership with family members, schools, and the community to assist the young person and family to strengthen their connections with each other and their commitments to being positive parts of the community in which they live. As part of our services to the community, we attempt to collect restitution for victims as well.
Foster care is provided to children that are in need of care. We also license individuals and families wishing to become licensed foster homes. Kinship care is another service offered similar to foster care, in which children are placed in the care of a relative.
