OCA Resource Guide: Child-Serving State Agencies

Information about eligibility requirements, services, and application processes for state agencies that provide services to children and youth in the Commonwealth.

The OCA Resource Guide is an introduction to the different agencies that serve children across the Commonwealth. The guide includes descriptions of each agency, who each agency serves, lists of programs and services that they offer, and how to apply for services, where applicable. This guide will be updated as needed to include other agencies, new programs, and any changes in the application process.

If you believe a child is being abused or neglected, call the DCF Child-at-Risk Hotline: 1-800-792-5200.
