Child Welfare Services

Welcome to Napa County’s Child Welfare Services Site!

Child Welfare’s primary goal is to prevent or remedy neglect, abuse, or exploitation of children while preserving, rehabilitating, or reuniting families. Another major responsibility is to assure adequate care of children who are in "Out-of-Home" placement, i.e. foster children. 

Child Welfare Services programs include: 

  • Adoption Services
  • Assessment Team
  • Family Maintenance
  • Family Preservation
  • Family Reunification
  • Permanent Placement
  • Emergency Response
