A Message to Our Community Regarding COVID-19

Monterey County Family and Children’s Services will remain open during Monterey County’s shelter in place order, and we are committed to providing services to the community in the safest way possible. We will continue to accept applications for Resource Family Approval (RFA) at this time. The first step is to attend the RFA Orientation webinar in English or Spanish on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm. Please email your name and phone number to the RFA inbox at to register. All trainings and correspondence will be handled online until further notice.

How can we further assist you? Please leave us a note below! Or you can call us at 831-755-4475. Ask to speak to a Social Worker in the Resource Family Approval (RFA) Unit.

If you suspect child abuse or neglect, please report it to our hotline at 1-800-606-6618.
