Mission Statement

Citizens will shape public policy and actively promote conditions which ensure that every child lives in a safe, secure, healthy, and permanent home while preserving families whenever possible, and that youth offenders become successful and productive members of society.

Description

Our County's Foster Children Need Your Help

Children in foster care need help from their community to help ensure they have a safe permanent home as soon as possible. Citizen Review Board volunteers are court appointed, and usually meet one weekday per month to provide case review and oversight of children and youth in out of home placements (foster care). Volunteers work to promote conditions that ensure that every child lives in a safe, secure, healthy, permanent home, preserving families whenever possible and that youth offenders become successful and productive members of society. Volunteer to serve on the Citizen Review Board, a program of the Oregon Judicial Department, because Every Day Counts...in the life of a child in foster Care.
