Monroe County Children Services investigates alleged child abuse and neglect.

We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  During normal business hours, dial 740-472-1602.  After hours dial or you may contact the Monroe County Sheriff at 740-472-1612.  Callers may remain anonymous.

Please help us stop child abuse and neglect.
If you are interested in becoming a foster parent or adopting a child, please contact us.  We are in need of good people and safe homes for children in Monroe County who are temporarily or permanently removed.


Our staff also provides services to stop the exploitation and neglect of the elderly.  If you know someone who is age 60 or over and is in need of services, we are the first point of contact.  After assessing the situation, we will refer to community resources or work further with the adult.  We do not provide homemaker services, however, the GMN Tri County, Inc. does.  Please call 740-732-2388 for more information.
