The Vermont Department for Children and Families (DCF) is a state agency of Vermont, headquartered in the Waterbury Office Complex in Waterbury.[1][2]

The department was formed on July 1, 2004.[3]

DCF operates the Woodside Juvenile Rehabilitation Center, used for short-term placement and long-term treatment of juvenile delinquents.[4] It is Vermont's sole locked juvenile facility.[5] The detention program can serve up to 16 boys and girls, and the treatment program can serve up to 12 boys.[6] Woodside is located in Colchester.[7]

In 2010, the IRS began investigating a former Children and Families employee from Newport who was accused of embezzling $490,000 using 250 checks, from August 2004 until October 2009.The technical charge was failure to report income and pay income tax.[8] She was found guilty in 2011, imprisoned and ordered to make restitution.[9]
