Camelot's Child Welfare Case Management programs provide dependency and permanency services to children in state custody both in both out of home care and relative/non-relative placements. Certified Case Managers work with children and families to address the reasons for their entering the child welfare system with the goal of reunifying the child with the family. In some cases, the child may not be reunified with the family and in these cases; Camelot works to seek a permanent home for the child through other relatives or adoption. Each day, Camelot serves over 700 children in this program.
