Children whose health or emotional well-being is thought to be endangered, but who remain in a family that receives a service from Child and Family Services (CFS). Services requested by the family or received upon "recommendation" by CFS are intended to serve as aid in the resolution of family matters.

Prevalence of children in a family receiving services from CFS is defined as the percent of children 0 to 17 years who were reported in CFSIS as receiving services within a three-year time period.
