Our Board has been active in the community for many years.  The Children’s Services Board of Galveston County is dedicated to addressing the issues facing our youth and families in Galveston County.  Our goal is to let the community know of the services offered in our area and to find any gaps in services for our smallest citizens. We will also continue our efforts to prevent child abuse in our communities by supporting our service providers and reaching out to our communities.  We also support and fund the needs of our children in foster care.

 "The family is the corner stone of our society. More than any other force it shapes the attitude, the hopes, the ambitions, and the values of the child. And when the family collapses it is the children that are usually damaged. When it happens on a massive scale the community itself is crippled. So, unless we work to strengthen the family, to create conditions under which most parents will stay together, all the rest - schools, playgrounds, and public assistance, and private concern - will never be enough."
