Social Services

Our mission

Wyandot County Social Services Unit provides family-centered services to protect children from abuse and neglect by building safe and permanent families. We offer a spectrum of services from family assessment and support to temporary and permanent child placement through foster care, adoption and independent living programs. Every day we assess reports of abuse or neglect, collaborate with other organizations that serve children in Wyandot County, and help families meet the needs of our community’s most vulnerable children.

With compassion and commitment, we touch the lives of thousands of people in Wyandot County every year by providing a voice for children and supporting the families who care for them. The safety of the children in our community is always our top priority.
