Family Support Services

The Division of Family Support Services provides a comprehensive approach to preventing child abuse and neglect to ensure the health, well-being and positive growth and development of all young children in Connecticut.
The division identifies and supports the most effective means of assisting and strengthening families, communities, and human services workforce in order to prevent child abuse and neglect. To do this, staff provide training and contract for direct services to help:
  • Parents become effective caregivers and develop nurturing relationships with their children (i.e. through home visiting and creating single points of access to services in communities)
  • Communities and human service staff become more responsive to the needs of children and support their positive growth and development (i.e. truancy prevention, child development system building, provider trainings in maternal and child health, developmental screening)
  • Families find resources in time of need
Programs within the Division of Family Support Services include:
