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.
