A Child Protective Services (CPS) home visit checklist is an essential tool for any social worker or family services professional providing child protective services. It helps to ensure that the personnel is following safety protocols and procedures when visiting the homes of those they serve. The checklist is a comprehensive list of items that need to be addressed during home visits, such as ensuring safe and healthy living conditions, observing family dynamics, and protecting the rights of any children present in the home. This checklist also serves as a valuable reference point for social workers to track progress made on individual cases over time.
