County Human Services

Intake Services Division

The purpose of the Intake Unit is to investigate referrals received from concerned citizens and mandated reporters who suspect either child abuse or neglect.  A screening unit answers all calls related to referrals of child abuse/neglect and obtain the necessary information needed to identify the risk to the child.  Cases that are accepted for assessment are assigned to an intake worker to complete the investigation.

The Emergency Services Unit is a necessary and mandated service. On call staff are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to respond to situations involving child abuse or neglect.
