AFFEC stuff:

OUR MISSION is to find loving, permanent families for every waiting foster child.

ACE   Advocate---Connect---Educate

James 1:27  Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

ORS 418.575-598 is SB 964 as codified. There are three apparent main points: (1) AFFEC is a county partner ---ORS 418.575(3); (2) family finding is a Strengthening, Preserving and Unifying Families program ---ORS 418.580(3)(j); and (3) DHS and juvenile court must explain in writing why family finding, if not done, was not in the best interests of the child ---ORS 418.595(2).
