Every Day Counts...In the Life of a Child in Foster Care Over 220 children are in foster care in Linn County!
Do you want to help ensure that they live in safe, secure, healthy and permanent homes? Do you have one day per month to review the cases of children and families involved with the foster care system?
Apply to the Citizen Review Board (CRB), Oregon’s foster care review program! CRB Volunteer Board Members review the case plans of children and families involved in the child welfare system and hold reviews to determine if placements and services are appropriate. The CRB Volunteer Board Members make legal findings and recommendations that are filed with the court. Training opportunities are scheduled throughout the year; apply now if you are interested!
