Socially Necessary


The Bureau for Children and Families of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, in partnership with KEPRO, designed and implemented a system to authorize services in child welfare cases called the Socially Necessary Services Program.

Socially necessary services improve relationships and social functioning, with the goal of preserving the individual's tenure in the community or the integrity of the family or social system. Socially necessary services are interventions designed to maintain or establish safety, permanency and well-being for the Bureau for Children and Families' targeted populations of child protective and youth services.
