OR: Keep more Oregon families together (Opinion)
Will all the children in Oregon's foster care system make it through this year without being harmed? It's a disturbing question. Because we know some may not. But the state is trying. And it is working a new approach: Putting more effort into helping parents succeed so children can stay with their families. It's called family first. It's part of a nationwide change in thinking about foster care. And it is backed up with resources and the law from the federal Family First Prevention Services Act of 2018.
