Stark County Division of Children Services
Our agency is committed to protecting children and strengthening families. The Children Services Division serves the county’s children at risk of abuse or neglect and their families. We also recruit and train foster and adoptive families and prepare children for adoption. Whether you are seeking information on child abuse and neglect, foster and adoptive parenting, or upcoming agency events, we hope you will find the information you need here.
- The 2015 Senior Forum is September 17th from 9am-1:00pm at the Cultural Center for the Arts.
- A free "Expungement and CQE Informational Clinic" is being held on August 19th at Life Ministries Church (2651 Market Avenue North). Information obtained at this clinic may help an individual received the fresh start they need to become employed. The clinic is from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with 30 minute informational sessions occurring every half hour; the event is being sponsored by our agency, the Stark County Fatherhood Coalition, and Community Legal Aid. If an individual is low income (below the 200% poverty level) and has a child (custodial or non-custodial parent), obtaining an Expungement or CQE will be performed by Community Legal Aid at no cost to the individual. This is a significant opportunity for someone who is being held back by a criminal record, please help get the word out on this event.
