Children & Family Services

Phone: 518-388-4279

The Schenectady County Children & Families Services Office is responsible for overseeing a wide range of programs and services for at-risk families and children. The aim of the department is to keep families together whenever possible within the community, to help the family survive as a unit, and to promote normal development and growth.

The goal for every child is a legally permanent home that gives a child a sense of safety, security and the opportunity to form healthy attachments to adults and a sense of belonging in a family. The office receives assistance from and collaborates with the court and legal networks, advocacy groups, home care providers, and other agencies to achieve these ends.
