Children in Care

As stated in the ORS mission statement, ORS serves children and families by promoting independence through responsible parenthood and ensuring public funds are used appropriately. These services reduce the costs to public assistance programs.

One important way ORS accomplishes this mission is by providing services to reimburse the state for costs of supporting children placed in its care and/or custody. In accordance with Federal and state laws, rules, policies and procedures, the ORS Children in Care (CIC) teams locate parents, establish obligations for financial and medical support and enforce those obligations while a child is in state care.

ORS Now accepts credit card payments over the phone! For more information about credit card payments click here.
