Oregon Expands My NeighbOR Program For Foster Families Statewide

"In late March 2020, the Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) partnered with non-profit Every Child to launch the My NeighbOR program and expand it to foster families statewide.

"The goal is to provide immediate support and comprehensive statewide emergency response for foster families in 36 counties during the national health emergency due to the coronavirus pandemic and the state’s stay-at-home order that closed schools and limited caseworker home visits. Since launching My NeighbOR, the program has received 647 requests from 260 foster families and foster children, and has connected 524 of those requests to people willing to help. "
