U.S. Ombuds Wikipedia Page Needs Work

The Wikipedia page for “Ombudsmen in the United States” is painfully incomplete. It lists only about a dozen Classical Ombuds programs. Organizational Ombuds are not mentioned. Only one media Ombuds (NPR) is listed. The list of Ombuds associations has just two entries: the Coalition of Federal Ombudsman and the United States Ombudsman Association. 

So far, the page has been created by Wikipedia administrators and super contributors, not practicing Ombuds.  The page needs an overhaul by some motivated and better informed volunteers. (Wikipedia.)
