Description of ServiceSaratoga County Children's Protective Services investigates hotline reports and assesses the safety/risk to children in order to reduce the occurrence of abuse and maltreatment. Preventive services are those supportive and rehabilitative services provided to children and their families for the purpose of averting a disruption of a family which will or could result in the placement of a child in foster care, enabling a child who has been placed in foster care to return to his or her family at an earlier time than would otherwise be possible, or reducing the likelihood that a child who has been discharged from foster care will return to foster care.
