Strengthening Families, Protecting Children and Enhancing Our Community
The services of the Children and Families division support and enhance safe, responsible family functioning and the protection of children and our community. We help families to identify unsafe/risky behaviors and overcome struggles that limit ability to properly care for their children, including those challenged by disabilities. Our juvenile supervision services hold young people accountable for their behavior and assist them in developing the skills and abilities necessary to lead a safe productive life.
Assistance is provided through:
- Children's Long-term Support Services (CLTS) - HSD oversees children's long-term support services in Washington County which includes Birth to Three, The Family Support Grant and Children's Long-Term Support Waivers. In Washington County to determine if your child is eligible for disability related services, all state-mandated Functional Eligibility Screening is done through Compass Wisconsin. Please call Laurie Grable at 920-470-0726 to set up an appointment.
The CLTS services could include:
-In-home treatment therapy
-Daily living skills training
This funding is last resort and services must be directly related to a child's
disability in order to help families support their children within their own home.
