Welfare Pilot Program to be Discussed


Klamath Falls, Ore.– Supporting children through improved welfare programs– that’s the goal of a pilot program called Different Response being tested in Klamath and Lake Counties. The programs aims to provide several avenues for ensuring children’s total well-being when a family is screened as a result of being reported for possible abuse or neglect. Officials from the Oregon Department of Health Services will be in the Basin next week to discuss the program and how community organizations can join forces with the state agency to improve the well-being of children in the welfare system.
