The Department of Juveniles Services Families in Need of Services (FINS) section is designed to assist families and children that are having difficulties. The parent and the child must report to the Department of Juvenile Services to complete necessary paperwork to enroll the child and the family in the program. A screening process occurs, and if the family is accepted, a FINS Probation Counselor will be assigned the case.
