Orientation in Dependency Cases

Once a month a class titled “All about Dependency” is offered to parents whose children have been removed from their care by Child Protective Services and for whom Dependency Petitions have been filed with the Court. Parents are required to attend this two-hour class after Shelter Care. 

The class informs parents about the Dependency process. Successful veteran parents provide stories and advice about what helped them in regaining custody of their children. The class encourages parents to engage in remedial services immediately and attend all possible visits in order to reunite with their children.
