Indian Child Welfare Program

What is ICW?

The Indian Child Welfare (ICW) Program was developed to ensure compliance of the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978. Our goal is “To prevent the breakup of Indian Families and to ensure that the permanent removal of Indian children from the custody of his or her Indian parent or custodian shall be a last resort while promoting safety, security and stability of Otoe-Missourian families.”
