Foster Care/Child Welfare System Involved Youth

The primary responsibility for child welfare services rests with the states, and each state has its own legal and administrative structures and programs that address the needs of children and families.

Child protection programs focus on child abuse or harm prevention, intervention, and enforcement. They address a variety of issues including missing and exploited children, crimes against children, abused and neglected children, and children exposed to domestic or community violence.
