Children with Own Families (Other than Protective Services) III. Protective Services IV. Battered Child V. Foster Boarding Home Care VI. Emergency Shelter Home Care VII. Other Temporary Foster Care VIII. Unmarried Mothers IX. Adoption Services X. Court Services XI. Juvenile Courts XII. Services Supplementary to Casework XIII. Needs and XIV. Goals. There is also a narrative annual report outlining the year's activities and including goals for the future. Of particular interest are the special investigations of individual county programs and some of the correspondence dealing with hopes for expansion of the child welfare programs often involving key legislators of the area. For County Annual Reports for the Department of Family Services, see Series 6-5 of Subgroup 8, Benefits Payments Division.

The arrangement of these records varies with the time period. Through the 1962 fiscal year, the reports are arranged alphabetically by county. Beginning with the 1963 fiscal year, the reports are grouped by child welfare district number but not in numerical order. Thus after 1962 one must know the geographical makeup of each district in order to find a particular county's report. It is also important to note the erratic box order in the finding aid. The boxes are not in chronological order.
