About this resource

What is the role of a Foster Care Ombudsman?

  • To act as an independent forum for the investigation and resolution of complaints made by or on behalf of the youth themselves and make appropriate referrals.
  • So that youth who are experiencing abuse in their biological, foster, adoptive, kinship, respite, residential and group home placements could contact that Office, and their concern would be independently investigated.

Eligibility

Current Youth in Care, Former Foster Youth (18+)
