Athens County Children Services


At Athens County Children Services, the safety and well being of our children and families is our highest priority.

We have been following Governor DeWine’s daily press conferences regarding COVID-19 and are implementing additional safety measures.

Please know we remain committed to providing our core services; however, we must take action to protect our ability to provide these vital services.

In an abundance of caution to protect the community and our staff, as of March 16, 2020, we will be limiting public access to our buildings, however our staff remain available.

To report suspected child abuse or neglect, please call 740-592-3061, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm.

For emergency services after hours, please call 1-866-863-7373.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and cooperation as our community continues to work through this public health emergency.


Protecting Children, Strengthening Families, Securing Futures

Athens County Children Services continues to work diligently to keep children safe and families strong. We strongly believe that children living in a safe, stable, and nurturing family environment have the greatest chance of growing into productive, contributing members of the community.

Athens County Children Services works hard to provide or arrange services that enhance the factors that protect children and promote strong families. We provide prevention services that support families so that incidents of abuse and neglect are reduced or eliminated.

The agency continues to improve services as well as continuing to partner with our community to further enhance services to children and families. It does take a community to protect a child.

Athens County Children Services remains committed to working with families, service providers, and community members to provide children with safe and stable homes. Contact us today for more information.
