California Foster Care Ombudsman Office

The word “Ombudsman” derives from a Swedish term

indicating a person who acts on behalf of another.

The American Bar Association has further defined an Ombudsman as “an independent governmental official who receives complaints against the government (and government-related agencies) and/or its officials from aggrieved persons, who investigates, and who, if the complaints are justified, makes recommendations to remedy the complaints.

In California, the Office of the Foster Care Ombudsman is an independent resource for reviewing issues concerning children and youth in foster care and those who care about them. Its purpose is to provide foster children and youth or citizens with a forum for voicing their concerns regarding the care, placement and services of children and youth in foster care.

The California Foster Care Ombudsman provides the following services:

  • Maintains a statewide toll-free Foster Care Help-Line (1-877-846-1602).
  • Conducts objective investigations and attempts to resolve complaints made by or on behalf of children or youth placed in foster care, related to their care, placement or services.
  • Disseminates information to children and youth in foster care, and professionals regarding services of the Foster Care Ombudsman Office and foster youth rights.
  • Compiles all data collected on a yearly basis and makes that information available to the Legislature.

The Ombudsman Office receives complaints and concerns from a wide range of individuals including foster youth, parents, relatives, CASAs, attorneys, social workers, and many other interested parties.

They have a detailed complaint and inquiry process, which includes inquiring if the complainant feels safe making a complaint and if there is any fear of retaliation, and will explore various approaches to address the concerns.

I agree, that Chris Forte of the California State Ombudsman Office is to look into complaints, but why didn't she in the Perry Family Case of Chico & Butte County Ca?! Twice this family brought their concerns to her office. The mother with no criminal history or record of using any drugs or alcohol had her first baby unlawfully detained by CPS when only 13 days old. On day 2 CPS coerced this mildly disabled mother into a search of her & her parents home.....based on no evidence of any abuse or neglect. They had no right to violate Ms. Perry's or her parents 14th Amendment Rights under US Constitution of a illegal search & later unlawful detainment of her baby. All this and so much more was told to Ombudsman Office & this mother was told her baby is coming home, but it never happened. The grandfather of baby did tell everyone that this infants medical records prove there was never any "failure to thrive" or a "medically fragile baby" as CPS suggested. All this baby had was a mild case of jaundice, that's it. I say shame on all of those persons who were lazy & didn't advocate & who weren't impartial or objective.

i dont believe anyone is safe my children were hurt in foster care I was unable to be strong it weekended me more was less successfull in reunification process. first night in 4th placement's house there was a fire in the addic. Next placement sometime later my daught had bad injury to her head i heard the caretakers story did not match the injury so they were removed again, by this time i was not an option due to lack of completting services and jail violation. I always want to know are they safe now? i feel helpless i could not help them....what a country!, and were off in other countries destoring our enemies, is that what my children and i are? are we not American? on the intilal cps report spoke of them as father and I in "custody". Osanabinladens family were they treated in this manner or did we have respect while in another country.? They were taken from me while I was under the UTI son was hurt burn from hot soup do accidents not happen while moms completley sober preoccupied with the tv or on the phone? Im carefull now with the children I have I never want anyone to get hurt yet worse I never want anyones child to go to CPS (child destruction services).

i am in shock....still. these Big appealls cases: Rogers..and another...4.9 mill? these were years ago. cps, attorneys, AND JUDGES had to have heard SOMETHING SOMEWHERE about due process. MY case weakened me also. i feel like a bad mother ONLY because i didnt protect my childdren from them , the government. i should ve screamed, yelled, scratched my claws, bit , and never let go of my children.

Foster Children have rights....... who is responsible for them? who explains these right s to the children? i know what the answer is. i know that in my cps case my children were DENIED them.i am going to tell. im gonna tell everyone. i am going to tell the children also...not just mine but ALL THE CHILDREN IN FOSTER CARE EVERYWHERE. there is going to be hell to pay when they are old enough to sue. and sue every individual, agency,agent , man, woman, that were involved. MANDATED REPORTERS were really manhating reporters... they dont even know what abuse is. look it up people. its in black & white. AND i know that there needs to be EMINENT DANGER.im gonna tell on all these agencies that say abuse wheivil rightsn really it was only { can lead to }. all you commenters write letters to congress three each day bug themm sooooooooo much. these issues are still being ignored. this is big stuff. woman can vote, no one rides back of bus unless they want to, we talk about domestic violence now, so lets stand up and MAKE THEM DEAL WITH THIS. c

I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I
never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for
me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever
before.

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from
someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

My children were taken from me because I was homeless I felt that I did not have to tell no one where we were staying (cop's) the cps investigator who are they to corner me and my children and not let us go till the cps worker got there we were never seen sleeping on the streets nor would I ever. They took my 17 year old daughter and her 2year old baby on June 19th 2014 I have not seen them since then I have court order visit's my cps worker told me my daughter wanted nothing to do with me who is she to not comply with a court order (so sorry if I'm not making any sense) I have talked to her on the phone 3 times she told me when she turned 18 she was coming with me she also told the cps worker cps worker said what can I do for they scared her by telling her if she comes with me they will take her daughter from her. They all are demon's the whole department. I need serious help their is so much more to this I can not finish I will resume tomorrow
