Raise Me Up - A call to action to improve and ultimately prevent the need for foster care.
Moving Beyond Foster Care - This initiative is dedicated to safely and equitably reducing the number of children in foster care and improving the lives of the children who remain in our care.
Dear Child Care Partners,
Due to higher than expected attrition rates, the Employment Related Day Care program is discontinuing the Child Care (ERDC) Reservation list.
Effective March 22, 2011, our rules have changed allowing for DHS to remove the eligibility requirement for parents to have transitioned from TANF to employment or not have had a break in ERDC benefits in more than two (2) calendar months.
The intent of this change is to allow all clients who do not have Employment Related Child Care or have lost benefits to access services.
Please help get the word out. We anticipate that this change will remain in effect until June 30, 2011.
Thank you for your support in helping working families in Oregon.
