The crisis in the foster care system in Oregon is reaching historic depths. An epidemic of weekly scandals is reaching peak liberal as current and former foster kids are now suing the state. Despite secretary of state recommendations following an audit last year, governor Kate Brown has decided to form yet another “Advisory Board” to study the issue, rather than actually take action.

Oregon Public Broadcasting reports:

“A national advocacy group filed a class-action lawsuit Tuesday against the Oregon Department of Human Services, alleging the agency revictimizes children in its foster care system and has failed to address documented problems for at least a decade.

The nonprofit A Better Childhood filed the lawsuit along with Disability Rights Oregon and lawyers from the firm Davis Wright Tremaine.

“The system is so overwhelmed, under resourced and ineffective that older children and children with even relatively mild behavior problems are often not placed by DHS in family homes with necessary supports and services,” the lawsuit reads.

“Instead, DHS places these children in inappropriate institutions, ships them out of state where they are placed in costly and questionable for-profit congregate programs that do not address their needs, or largely abandons them so they wind up in homeless shelters or on the streets.”

The complaint also says the state’s foster care system is so bad it can’t accurately track how dysfunctional its services are.

The lawsuit names Gov. Kate Brown, Director of the Oregon Department of Human Services Fariborz Pakeresht, Director of Child Welfare Marilyn Jones and the Oregon Department of Human Services as defendants.
