Dinner and A Movie proudly announces that we are taking on the foster care system here in Oregon. Oregon’s Foster Care system is nationally known as darn near the worst. The worst part is that no one wants to take responsibility for the mess.
It’s the parents fault if they abuse, beat, neglect, or rape their children. However, small, vulnerable, children are returned to the very same parents that harmed them in the first place just to be abused again.
I ask, whose fault is it then? I have seen it happen again and again. When I ask why everyone from the bottom to the chief administrator of the program shrugged their shoulders and said, “That’s the law. Wish somebody could do something about it.” Well, there is something that can be done and we are doing it. We want to strengthen the laws so these children get better results from the system.
Please join us and change will come sooner.
