Several members of Congress are requesting the Office of Inspector General in the U.S Department of Health and Human Services investigate youth congregate care and residential facilities, including those operated by a company Oregon previously sent dozens of foster youth to for treatment. “Recent reports indicate that some companies contracting with federal and state governments administering federally-funded benefits to care for at-risk children have potentially violated the health and safety requirements required by law,” the letter, signed by eight members of Congress, including U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, a Democrat from Oregon, reads.
