​Welcome to Children and Youth

 
Huntingdon County Children’s Services is a federally-mandated, state-administered, county-run Protective Services Program for children who are abused and neglected.  This Agency serves children, youth and their families and works to ensure the safety and well-being of Huntingdon County’s children and youth. 
 
Our Agency works in conjunction with several county agencies and providers to implement in-home and out-of-home services which can include but are not limited to:

  • Counseling and parent support that is designed to keep children at home with their parents; prevent abuse, neglect and exploitation; and help overcome problems that do or could result in dependency or delinquency
  • Foster Care when it becomes necessary to remove a child from their home in order to ensure their safety and well-being
  • Programs that are designed to reunite the child with their family when a child is in foster care; in the event the child cannot return home, there are other programs that provide a permanent family for the child, such as adoption.

For more information about the Agency, please see CYS Mission Vision Values.pdfCYS Mission Vision Values.pdf
