Adult and Family Services

Home study evaluation services are rendered for the courts or other social service agencies involving child custody matters.

The purpose of the home study evaluation is to evaluate the child's physical environment and to reflect the type of parenting the child does or would receive in the home.

Home studies are also conducted for other states through the Interstate Compact for Placement of Children (ICPC).

Individual requests cannot be accepted for this service, as requests must come directly from the courts or other social service agencies. There may be a fee assessed for this service according to family size and income. 

Recommendations for placement and referrals for services are provided as deemed appropriate.
