St. Louis County is committed to protecting our most vulnerable residents - our children.
St. Louis County Children and Family Services assesses reports of alleged child maltreatment that are believed to have been committed by a parent or other household member, as well as provide ongoing support to families. Our goal is to engage families in a partnership to ensure the safety, permanency, and well-being of their children. This also encompasses a vision of partnering with community members to help support and nurture children and families.
The following criteria are used to determine when to perform a child maltreatment assessment in accordance with Minnesota Statutes Screening-Criteria-Alleged-Child-Maltreatment.pdf.
