Children, Youth & Families (CYF)
Our mission is to help families remain together. By assisting them in the development of skills in problem solving, communication, relationship building, and trust building, we seek to ensure a safe, nurturing environment for all family members. This unit serves children and families that have a variety of needs. Families may be referred by law enforcement, mandated reporters or community members. The unit is the statutory agent for juvenile delinquency and child protection concerns. The process includes assessment, engagement, service delivery and coordination. We manage a continuum of services to protect both children and the community. We utilize statutes, administrative rules and best practice standards to provide quality services.
Information & Referral
Provides information about and referrals to other departments, programs and community organizations.
The Birth to 3 Program (B-3) provides early intervention services to children from birth to age 3 who are determined to have a diagnosed physical or mental condition, with a high probability of a resultant developmental delay, or with a cognitive, physical (including vision and hearing), communicative, social or emotional delay.
Court Ordered Studies
We complete step-parent adoption and child custody studies when ordered by the Green County Family Court.
The Green County Child Advocacy Center ensures that children are not further victimized by the intervention systems designed to protect them. We provide a child-focused, child friendly facility in which representatives from many disciplines, including law enforcement, child protective services, prosecution, family and victim advocacy work together, conducting joint forensic interviews and making team decisions about the investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child abuse cases. The combined knowledge and experience of professionals from different disciplines result in a more complete understanding of case issues and the most effective child and family-focused system response.
