June 26

Did you know 34% of all intakes called into the child abuse and neglect hotline in 2017 reported at least one child under the age of 5 in the home?  Did you know 45% of all children removed from their parental home in 2017 due to child abuse and/or neglect are under the age of 5?  Do you find yourself wondering what role DHHS plays in these situations, and how the department makes safety decisions?  If so, you are in the right place. During this session, you will learn how DHHS helps ensure the safety of these young children. This will include an overview of the Child Abuse and Neglect Intake process, safety vs. risk and special considerations for this vulnerable population.
