# Child and Family Services Agency

The DC Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA) investigates reports of child abuse and neglect and provides child protection. Services include supportive community-based services that help families overcome difficulties while keeping their children out of foster care, foster care for children who cannot be safe at home, and adoption for children who cannot go home. CFSA seeks to achieve the highest quality of community-based services, to increase the number of families who receive preventive and supportive services, and to expand the network of resources providing services to at-risk children and their families.
