Indian Child Welfare Mission Statement

To protect the best interest of Indian Children and to promote the stability and security of Indian tribes and families by implementing the requirements established in the Siletz Tribal Juvenile Code, Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) and tribal customs, laws and policy.

The Indian Child Welfare department acts in the best interest of the child.  ICW staff advocates for Tribal children in State and Tribal Court Child Welfare jurisdictions. Please contact the ICW Program if you have questions regarding child abuse or neglect, or information regarding a family that may be experiencing factors that could be helped with supportive services.

The Indian Child Welfare Program needs good homes for temporary and long-term placement for Siletz Tribal children. Homes must be substance abuse, smoke and violence free. Foster homes and/or relative placements are needed both locally in Siletz and outside Siletz, including out of state.
