Richland County Children Services protects children at risk of abuse, neglect or dependency; they provide children the opportunity to live in a safe, nurturing and permanent family and they strengthen and support families in meeting the needs of the children. The board mantains these services, engages community partners, and manages financial obligations. Last year they helped over 2,100 children.
