Dear Foster Family:
I would like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Kendra Baker. I am the Department for Children and Families (DCF) Foster Parent and Youth Ombudsman. I am a licensed social worker and have experience working directly with Kansas children and families.
I understand fostering children in need comes with challenges so my hope is to serve as a liaison between you and our contracted foster care providers. I want to assure you that DCF will address your concerns with respect and professionalism. We can help with locating community resources, dealing with daily challenges and more. My staff and I are here to help you with any concerns or issues you may have while serving as a foster parent.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
or you can call me toll-free at 1-844-279-2306. Please feel free to contact me with any issues or concerns you have regarding foster care. I would very much like to hear your thoughts and suggestions on how we can better serve children in need. Thank you for providing a safe, loving and caring place for Kansas children.
DCF Foster Parent and Youth Ombudsman
