Dear Foster Families and Youth:
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Randy Lind, and I am the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) Foster Parent and Youth Ombudsman.
I understand fostering children comes with many challenges. We very much appreciate your care and concern for children in DCF custody, and know the hard work you put in. My hope is to serve as a liaison between you and our foster care providers. I want to assure you that I will address your concerns with compassion, respect and professionalism. I am here to help you with any concerns or issues you may have while serving as a foster parent.
I can be reached at email@example.com or you can call toll-free at 1-844-279-2306. I would very much like to hear your thoughts and suggestions on how we can better serve children in need. Thank you again for providing a safe, loving and caring place for our Kansas children.
Randall (Randy) Lind
DCF Foster Parent and Youth Ombudsman
