Child Welfare Office

The Child Welfare Office interior

The Child Welfare Office is the Hinamizawa branch office of the Center of Child Protection. It becomes an important plot point in Minagoroshi-hen when Keiichi Maebara, Mion Sonozaki, Shion Sonozaki, Rena Ryuuguu, and Rika Furude along with countless others stage a protest against the office in an attempt to get the Center of Child Protection to open Satoko Houjou's abuse case and take her away from her violent uncle Teppei Houjou.
