Our vision is that all children in Alameda County will have the opportunity to grow and develop in a safe, healthy, nurturing and stable home. To reach this goal, we strive to ensure that all children receive the support and security that a family, an extended family, or an alternative family can provide.
The Department of Children and Family Services (CFS) provides protective services to children and families. When a report is made of child abuse or neglect, a child welfare worker from our department investigates the report. If the child has been harmed or is at risk of harm, the child welfare worker will remove the child to a safer situation, usually to a relative or to an emergency foster home. Under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court, the child welfare worker then works closely with the parents to address the problems that led to the child's removal. Whenever possible, the child welfare worker reunifies the family, but only if the child can be returned home safely.
