Foster Care Ombudsman For Oregon
Foster care is meant to keep children safe and healthy, but taking kids away from their parents is tough on everyone involved: children, birth parents, and foster parents.
There are advocates available for children, but Oregon is now about to take a further step.
That step will be the creation of a Foster Care Ombudsman, to field calls, queries and complaints from foster children and foster parents alike.
We talk about the duties of the yet-to-be-hired ombudsman, and how the hiring process will move ahead.
