  Richland County Children Services 2012 Annual Report is available in print edition and also on the agency web site at http://www.childrenservices.org./upload/images/2012 Annual report final.pdf.

  Last year, Children Services  handled 7,501 calls from the community, investigated 2,860 reports of alleged maltreatment, served 504 families through ongoing family programs, closed the year with 61 youth in custody, 57 foster homes, and finalized five adoptions.

  On Feb. 27 of this year, Patricia Harrelson began her duties as the new executive director for Richland County Children Services who says the work of a child welfare agency is labor intensive and requires a highly-skilled, well supervised team.

  She says she's thankful for the agency's staff members who dedicate themselves each day to protecting children and serving families in Richland County.

  A copy of the print edition of the agency's 2012 Annual Report can be obtained by contacting Children Services Public Information and Outreach Supervisor Carl Hunnell by email at [email protected] with copies also to be available at the Richland County Fair, Lexington Blueberry Festival and Bellville Street Fair.
