Your Questions About Foster Care in Oregon, Answered

Maybe you’ve heard about Oregon’s foster care system. Probably not in a good way if you just follow the headlines.

But our goal for this project isn’t to rehash the same old story. We want to help move the needle toward solutions, and as always, that starts with answering questions from our readers.

What kind of person makes a good foster parent? How much support and training do they get from the state? And what can our education system do to better support foster children?

Check out the posts below to find out what we learned — and to meet people who’ve experienced Oregon’s foster system firsthand.
