 Welcome to Napa County’s Child Welfare Services Site!

We are charged with protecting children from abuse and neglect at the hands of their parents or other caregivers. We offer a variety of services, ranging from services to preserve and support families to out of home placement with relatives or foster parents. We also work hand-in-hand with many local community agencies to provide parent education as well as other child abuse prevention and early intervention services to families.

Our social workers are available to receive calls from any of you in our Napa County community who are concerned about the possible maltreatment of a child. Please follow the link to our Child Abuse Hotline if you need more information.

As always, we are in need of foster families for children of all ages so please take a minute to consider offering your love and your home to one of these children. For more information see our Foster Care information page.

We thank you for your continued support of the children of this community!
