Children Services Agency - PCSA

The mission of Children Services is to protect abused, neglected and dependent children and
promote their well-being.

We believe that each child has a right to be raised in a safe, permanent family.

Children Services values and depends on its partnership with community agencies and citizens to
protect Portage County’s children.

Children Services conducts investigations, provides home-based services, and foster care/adoption services. In 2005, Portage County rated 7th in the state out of 88 counties in placement of children nine years old and older for adoption.

The county is in urgent need of foster caregivers for temporary placement of children. For more
information, call 330-297-3809.

(330) 296-2273 – the CARES 24 Hour Reporting Hot Line
