Oregon DHS Director Erinn Kelley-Siel Stepping Down

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Erinn Kelley-Siel is leaving her job as director of the Oregon Department of Human Services as of July 24, 2015. Why did it take so long? Erinn Kelley-Siel joined the agency in 2008, serving as Director of Adult, Children, and Family Welfare Services. Before that, Kelley-Siel served as a policy adviser for Gov. Ted Kulongoski after being one of Kulongoski’s law clerks when he was a judge on the Oregon Supreme Court. Then Former Gov. John Kitzhaber appointed Kelley-Siel in 2011 as the Director of DHS. Why isn’t Kelley-Siel’s name mentioned in any of these lawsuits? Like most Department heads she resigned just before these allegations of mismanagement occured. She never answered one of my letters that I started writing her in 2008 concerning welfare fraud by her staff and the blatant disregard for the law her employees had in their positions. Crony Capitalism at it’s Best. I wonder what Department she is at now?

Oregon DHS reaches $15M settlement in foster child sex abuse lawsuit

SALEM, OR (KPTV) –
The Oregon Department of Human Services reached a $15 million settlement in a civil lawsuit filed by nine former foster children of a man who admitted to sexually abusing the children. DHS Interim Director Gene Evans said the DHS is taking responsibility for the actions committed against the children.”DHS knows, understands and admits responsibility for the damages suffered by these innocent victims,” he said.”The settlement reflects the agency’s accountability for failing to ensure the safety of these children in its care.” All of these errors in conduct occurred under former Director Erinn Kelley-Siel, former clerk to Kulongoski, a name you will never hear.

Oregon’s DHS Mishaps Discussed After Years of INACTION

Records show, under DHS care, children as young as 3 were reportedly raped. Another DHS investigation concluded senior citizens died from substantiated abuse. One of the department’s most recent mea culpas involved a $15 million lawsuit on behalf of 9 children abused by a Salem foster parent. DHS also received complaints about Give Us This Day, a foster care provider in Portland, for more than 10 years. Complaints included allegations that children were denied food, people were assaulted and even raped.
Hundreds of DHS emails related to the facility revealed that department heads knew many Give Us This Day caregivers and employees had criminal records. Give Us This Day was also operating without a proper license. DHS Interim Director Clyde Saiki, who was recently appointed by Governor Kate Brown, admits it’s”very difficult to control all aspects of the system.””Currently, there is no system in place to cross-check any red flags,” Saiki said.
