Child on a swing.

Child Protection Services are mandated by the Child and Family Services Act to protect children between the ages of 0-16 from various forms of abuse and neglect.

NEOFACS accepts referrals, conducts investigations and provides short and long term intervention services. Child Protection services strengthen families, by working with parents to develop a service plan that alleviates risks and ensures the safety of children. Agency staff will also advocate and coordinate essential supports with other community partners that support the family.

Emergency After Hours Services, Foster Care and Adoption Services support Child Protection services. Further support is extended to families through the use of Volunteer and Protection Support Services.
