All children need and deserve to grow up in a safe, stable family. For some children who are abused and neglected, this may mean living with a foster or adoptive family is the best alternative to their biological family. Huron County Children Services, in collaboration with our community, builds upon the strengths of families by providing or linking them to prevention and intervention services and resources.
