What is an Ombudsman?

Do you ever wish there was just one person in foster care who looked out for your best interests? Many youth have Court Appointed Special Advocates or a Guardian ad litem (CASA/GAL) but these individuals are meant to look out for a youth's best interest which may be different than what the youth wants. They also may not have frequent contact with youth. This article explains more what an ombudsman can do
