Prevention and Protection Services Foster Parent and Youth Ombudsman

​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 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.
Kendra Baker
DCF Foster Parent and Youth Ombudsman
