Muskingum County Children Services – Zanesville, Ohio

May is National Foster Care Month

Muskingum County Adult and Child Protective Services makes every effort to work with families to resolve their issues, while the children remain in the home. If this cannot be done, due to safety issues, Children Services places children in out-of-home care. When a child must be placed away from home, the agency seeks the least restrictive placement possible with family members, other kin, or in foster homes. Children Services works closely with foster parents when placement is necessary.

Nationwide, there are more than 400,000 youth currently in foster care. Currently, there are more than 100 youth in foster care in Muskingum County.

These are kids who, through no fault of their own, are in need of a safe and loving home. They’re waiting for YOU.

Anyone interested in becoming a foster parent should contact a foster care coordinator at 740-455-6710.
