INDIAN CHILD WELFARE

DO YOU KNOW OF A SITUATION WHERE INDIAN CHILDREN ARE EXPERIENCING NEGLECT OR ABUSE IN THE HOME, BY ANY FAMILY MEMBER, OTHER RESIDENT OR OCCUPANT?

The ICW program provides assistance to children who are being displaced from their home, are experiencing abuse and neglect in the home, or are being deprived of essential living conditions. The goal is to keep families together and in a safe & stable home. In the case of children needing to be placed into foster homes or adoption, the goal is to keep siblings together and placed in Indian homes. Program funds can provide limited assistance in crisis situations. This program is NOT intended to provide poverty assistance grants; however, there are circumstances in which severe poverty could lead to the potential neglect of children. Program services also include establishing eligibility for enrollment in tribal membership. All applicants will need to undergo an intake assessment.

ICW is funded by both federal and state grants. We work closely with tribal and state authorities to protect our Indian children. All information is strictly confidential according to federal laws.

For more information on the Indian Child Welfare program or to obtain ICW services, please call this phone number (918) 337-6510, or email: fcs@delawaretribe.org.
