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.
- We are proud to receive the Collaborative Partner of the Year Award from Goodwill today at their Report to the Community Breakfast. Whether it's through a work experience program that will help someone find a job, or a parenting class that will help a family become stronger, our partnership with Goodwill is making a difference for our clients and the community.
- Wednesday, April 8 is Wear Blue Day for showing your support for preventing child abuse and neglect. If you are interested in purchasing a Wear Blue T-Shirt contact Susan Verble at Susan.Verble@jfs.ohio.gov
