Citizen Review Board with the Oregon Judicial Department

Online Volunteer Opportunity

Detailed Information
Date(s) and Time(s)
The second Tuesday of every month. You can participate for a full day or a half of day, whichever works best for your schedule.

CRB members are volunteers from their local community who review the cases of children and families involved with the child welfare system. CRB board members review documents and are part of a team of other board members to meet with the parties involved in each case to evaluate if the state is ensuring that services and supports are offered to the families and children involved with the Child Welfare system. Board members will also make findings and recommendations for each case, which are then shared with all legal parties, which includes the Judge overseeing each case.

Our Vision: Citizens will shape public policy and actively promote conditions to ensure that every child lives in a safe, secure, healthy, and permanent home, preserving families whenever possible.

Our Mission: We provide a citizen voice on the safety, stability, and supervision of children in foster care through impartial case review and advocacy.

We Value:
A fair, impartial and inclusive review process.
Citizen input and advocacy.
Treating others with dignity and respect.
State accountability for the safety of children.
Appropriate and timely services for children and families.
A safe and nurturing family for every child.
