  • Vision

    The OCO strives to be a part of the solution that fosters greater accountability and transparency for Michigan's child welfare system.


    The mission of the OCO is to assure the safety and well-being of Michigan's children in need of protective services, foster care, adoption services, and juvenile justice and to promote public confidence in the child welfare system. This will be accomplished through independently investigating complaints, advocating for children, and recommending changes to improve law, policy, and practice for the benefit of current and future generations.
