Monroe County DHS Prevention Unit

The Preventive Services Unit, a division of the Monroe County Department of Human Services, is committed to contracting for the most effective, efficient, and accessible services for families whose children are at risk of placement out of the home. These services are intended to prevent foster care placements, hasten the return home of children already in placement, divert youth from entering the Family Court system, prevent and reduce incidents of child maltreatment and strengthen family life.
