Children need love, care, and safety; they need families

The Greatest terror a child can have is that he is not loved, and rejection is the hell of fears...... And, with rejection comes anger, and with anger some kind of crime in revenge for the rejection, and with crime, guilt - and there is the story of humankind. John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Virginia Children's Services Practice Model

Virginia Children’s Services Practice Model

We have developed a common philosophy that has helped to shift practice to achieve better outcomes for youth and families.

We believe:

All children and communities deserve to be safe.

In family, child, and youth-driven practice.

Children do best when raised in families.

All children and youth need and deserve a permanent family.

In partnering with others to support child and family success in a system that is family-focused, child-centered, and community-based.

How we do our work is as important as the work we do.
