Here is what ACS claims they do:

Mission:

The Administration for Children’s Services protects and promotes the safety and well-being of New York City’s children, young people, families, and communities by providing excellent child welfare, juvenile justice, and early care and education services.
Principles:

Protect and Strengthen Children, Young People, and Families

Through all of the work of ACS, children, young people, and families are our first priority. Services are to be delivered with respect, cultural competence, accountability, and transparency.
Promote Social and Intellectual Development

The promotion of education among all those that we serve is critical to the future success of our children and young people. From early care and education, to college and vocational attainment for our young people, education ensures that they have the skills and knowledge to succeed.
Support Our Workforce

ACS is committed to support the agency’s workforce, including of our provider partners, to meet the needs of serving the children, youth, and families of New York City through the promotion of a culture of respect, professionalism, and staff development.
Collaborate with Partners

ACS cannot achieve its mission without the collaboration, mutual respect, and support of partners inside and outside of government, including provider agencies, government agencies, the Family Court community, advocates, funders, and the general public. ACS works collectively with them to ensure that we are delivering the best services to those we serve.
Encourage Openness and Transparency

ACS actively seeks input from young people, parents, advocates, interested members of the community, and our partners to inform the policies, practices, and services of the agency. To the fullest extent possible, ACS is transparent about our work, while respecting children, young people, and families’ privacy.

This is simply incorrect. A Brooklyn Grand Jury recently found that ACS workers are responsible for the deaths of 19 children. ACS is a completely inept and dysfunctional agency. If they contact you, contact us as soon as possible. Call 917-519-8417.
