TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Because of limited placement options within the 14-county jurisdiction, the Cherokee Nation Indian Child Welfare is searching for Native Americans who have Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood cards and who are willing to become foster or adoptive parents for Cherokee children.

“Our Cherokee children need us,” said Nancie Ross, child welfare specialist. “These children are the future of our Nation, and we may one day have to rely on them to take care of us. Our Nation’s very existence is in the hands of our young people and we need to do all that we can to keep them within our culture.”
ICW’s mission is to provide tribal children who are unable to be cared for by their biological family, a safe and permanent home.

If you are a citizen of any federally recognized American Indian tribe and want to be a foster or adoptive parent, call 918-458-6900, email homes4kids@cherokee.org or visit cherokeekids.org.
