Administration for children and families-citing websites often requires that you supplement apa rules with some detective work. the principle underlying apa citation formats is give the reader the information needed to retrieve the source. along with that principle, keep in mind that links to websites often change between the time a paper is written and when a reader is trying to use the link. therefore, give the reader the most helpful information to track down the source. u.s.dept. of health and human services (dhhs) is perhaps too broad to be helpful in tracking down this source authored by a division within dhss. the office of community services makes sense in the context of the dhhs, but without that context, office of community services could apply to any local community government or home-owners association. in this case, the administration for children and families (acf) is the corporate author that takes responsibility for the content on the website. you can confirm this authorship status by clicking on the last updated link at the bottom ot the page, which opens a new page that includes acfs responsibility for the site.
