Children and Family Services
The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services works to improve child safety, strengthen families, decrease timelines to permanence, reduce reliance on out-of-home care, promote self-sufficiency, and increase child and family well-being. The Department administers the Child Abuse Hotline and Emergency Response Command Post as well as providing protective services to children in their own homes, short-term out-of-home services, adoption, guardianship and long-term foster care.
