AUDIO: This week on the Coastal File, we are talking to Susan Thornton with the (DHS) Department of Human Services Foster Parent Program here in Coos County.
The Department of Human Services (DHS) is Oregon’s principal agency for helping Oregonians achieve wellbeing and independence through opportunities that protect, empower, respect choice and preserve dignity, especially for those who are least able to help themselves.
DHS provides direct services to more than 1 million Oregonians each year. These services provide a key safety net for those in our society who are most vulnerable or who are at a difficult place in their life.
Foster Parent Program: (541) 756-5500
