Ohio Youth Ombudsman


The Youth Ombudsman works independently from children services and placement agencies to help you solve problems and, if you are in foster care, advocate for your rights to be protected while in foster care. The Youth Ombudsman conducts investigations in a fair and neutral manner.

If you have already reached out to your local children services or placement agency and your issue is still not resolved OR if you do not feel safe contacting your local agencies, file a complaint here: https://odjfs.force.com/YFOForms/s/youthintakeform
