Subject:RE: Child protection supervision

One thing that concerns me has been brought up a lot by Richard, who points out that the Washington Child Advocate office broadened the definition of neglect, making it easier to remove children. Lots of times what one hears from CASA advocates and the like is more pressure to severe kids from their families as opposed to greater willingness to maintain kids in their home. Richard says the structure matters less than who runs the program. Looks like the ABA child ombudsman listserv is defunct, the link on their website goes to their main listserv server (ABA has a couple of hundred listservs run out of the same system), the serer didn't recognize the listserv name, and when I sent email with the command "LIST" to show all the listservs this one wasn't on the main index. Looks like something they were doing in 2004, when the ABA also had a conference on Ombudsman programs. What if we started with a pilot program, possibly working with the law school clinic program? I'd like to see something that would bring in investigative talent along with fresh viewpoints. It's also possible that UND social work faculty could play a part. Referral info could be disseminated to parents not just through county agencies and juvenile court facilities (that would be a requirement) but also through legal assistance offices, the 211 hotline, and similar resources. Lots of times people call legal assistance but find they can't get help for this issue.
