Preserving Connections - Best Strategies for Recruiting and Retaining Tribal Foster Families for American Indian and Alaska Native children

Feb 26, 2018
  • Description

American Indian and Alaska Native children thrive with families that reflect their culture, especially if they need to be placed in out-of-home care. To preserve these connections, the federal Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) lays out preferred placements for out-of-home care when a child who meets the ICWA's definition of an "Indian child" is not able to be safe at home.
