TOPEKA — The Kansas Department for Children and Families is letting foster parents know that it has hired an ombudsman to hear their concerns.
Niomi Burget, a former aide in Gov. Sam Brownback’s office, started July 1.
“Foster parents do a tremendous service by caring for Kansas children,” DCF Secretary Phyllis Gilmore said in a prepared statement. “They deserve to have their needs met promptly so they are fully prepared and equipped to provide a loving temporary home to foster children.”
