Child Welfare Programs - DHS > Web site
Child Welfare Programs serve children and families when children are subject to abuse and neglect in their home environment. Child protection workers respond to all reports of familial child abuse and neglect and, if a child cannot be safe at home, place children in foster care. In the last five years, Oregon has reduced its foster care population, concentrating on safety, and is moving toward a system that prevents out-of-home placement (even of abused children) and increases timely and safe return to families. The cost of abuse and neglect—to children, to families, and to the state—is significant.
