Oregon youth are helping hire the new foster care ombudsman. Who better to help hire the person to protect their rights, than the youth.
What is an ombudsman? An ombudsman is a person hired to help protect the rights of an individual. This person will help youth file complaints when they have them and also make sure that the new youth rights list gets out to youth across Oregon. Oregon is one of the only states who has an ombudsman specifically for foster youth!
