The DCS Office of Prevention was established to prevent child abuse/neglect. To support the needs of children and strengthen families, the Office of Prevention collaborates with the Community, Service Providers, Stakeholders and the DCS Field Staff. Through these collaborations, the Office of Prevention leverages resources, education, training and programs based on best practices to serve Arizona’s children and families.
