The Larimer County Department of Human Services Children, Youth and Family Division is offering a challenging career opportunity for an energetic, self-motivated individual to assume the position of Deputy Division Manager.
Child Protection Services provides 24-hour assistance in investigating allegations of child abuse and neglect. Caseworkers from one of eight paired teams respond to reports of possible child abuse or neglect. Referrals can be made by law enforcement, schools, medical professionals, or anyone who feels there is a situation that warrants investigation. Each referral is screened and may be investigated by a visit or phone interview, and a determination is made whether additional follow up is necessary. Any referral may lead to temporarily placing the child(ren) in foster or kinship care for their own protection. There is an array of services and programs available for open cases, when there is a need to work with families on a continuing basis to assure a child's safety.
