The Child Welfare part of our unit handles background checks for those seeking custody both temporary and permanent of children in the state. Our mission is to ensure that each child is placed a safe, healthy and productive home. If you have a DHS case and have been assigned a worker please contact them about your background check as it is their responsibility to file and complete your background for DHS records.
