Our mission is to help our community be safe, supported and self-sufficient. The Mono County Department of Social Services offers a variety of services to individuals and families through several Federal, State, and County programs.
Adult Protective Services
Each California County has an Adult Protective Services (APS) agency to help elder adults (65 years and older) and dependent adults (18-64 who are disabled), when these adults are unable to meet their own needs, or are victims of abuse, neglect or exploitation. County APS agencies investigate reports of abuse of elders and dependent adults who live in private homes, apartments, hotels or hospital.
(APS) responds to reports from individuals, concerned citizens, social service and health providers, and law enforcement representatives about developmentally disabled adults, physically and mentally disabled adults, and the elderly who may be physically or financially abused, neglected, or exploited.
You may call our 24 hour Hotline to report suspected child or adult abuse at 1-800-340-5411 or 760-932-7755.

Mono County Child Welfare Services (CWS) is committed to excellence in the delivery of culturally competent, family-centered and child-focused protective services.
Child Welfare protects children from abuse and neglect. We work with families to ensure the safety of their children and to assist them in reaching their full potential. When children cannot be cared for by their families due to safety issues, we place them with families that can provide a temporary to lifelong commitments to them. We work in collaboration with the community toward healthy independence for families and their children.”
