Clarion County CYS has done an incredible job trying to protect and care for all children in need. They want to see parents keep their children, as much as the parents want to and work hard to maintain healthy happy homes for everyone involved. Great experience with everyone so far

The previous reviews are untrue. In my experience with CYS, they do everything within their means to help those children who are in need and their families.

CYS is a joke. They call at least 24hrs before they even go to a house to check things out. That gives the people who are suppose to be getting checked up on a chance to clean their house, tell their children what/ or what not to say, and put on a completely fake show. Id love to know how your helping children when your giving their parents time to put on a fake show. but as long as you have running water and heat everything is fine and there is no damage. I have actually seen a CYS person who came to a house because things weren't right just stand at the door ask if its a safe home say okay thanks and leave. Its a joke they don't help children unless the child is living in a chicken coop!

CYS of clarion county is the biggest joke known to man. They refuse to do anything about neglect of a child. So if you really want help save your time by not using this department!!!
