Our primary focus is the safety and well-being of children and youth. Our agency conducts assessments, offers support services such as counseling and teaching and, whenever possible, provides resources. The Children’s Aid Society of SDG also facilitates public adoptions for children and youth whose birth family is unable to care for.

Whether you’re a professional, a teacher, a family member or simply a concerned citizen, know that every call is evaluated individually before any action is taken.

We believe that children do best when they are at home with their families. In only a small number of cases are children removed from a family, since our priority is always to give parents the support and services they need to create a safe home.
