Children’s Services of Virginia (CSV) is a private, licensed child placing agency providing foster care, treatment foster care, and adoption services for children and families. CSV opened its doors in 1992 and is licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services to provide services to children from birth to age 21. We serve the northern half of Virginia including Fredericksburg, Winchester, Front Royal, Harrisonburg and surrounding areas. Families who are approved by the agency are referred to as Resource Families.
Our program primarily serves children who have been abused and neglected. Some of these children will not be able to return to their birth family. If parental rights are terminated, the current resource family is almost always given the opportunity to adopt the children. CSV charges no fee to the resource family and assists with the adoption process.
Twenty foster children were adopted by our resource families in 2016!
