Child Welfare Services
It is my great pleasure to serve as the Deputy Director of Napa CWS. I, in partnership with our dedicated staff and committed community partners desire that Napa County will be the safest place for children to grow and thrive.
The Division of Child Welfare is composed of a specialized set of services that strengthen the ability of families to protect and care for their own children, minimize harm to children and youth, and ensure timely permanency planning. The services we provide are intended to stabilize the family situation and strengthen the family's capacity to care for their children. When safety is not possible within the family, services focus on the child's need for a stable, permanent home as quickly as possible.
Our diverse and highly dedicated staff are the key to our successful work with children, youth and their families. Our staff strive daily to provide outstanding care and services to children and families that we serve. Our efforts are further enhanced when working with our partners, both within the divisions of Health and Human Services and in the broader community of agencies and programs.
