The mission of the Oneida Child Placement Agency is to recruit, license, train and support American Indian foster homes and the Oneida children they care for.
Oneida Nation Foster Care Program is a state licensed, tribal run Child Placing Agency developed to facilitate out-of-home placements for Oneida Children when family is unavailable. In Wisconsin, there are more Native American children in foster care than there are licensed Native American foster parents. Children are at risk of being placed outside of their communities and/or away from their tribes, thus creating more barriers to reunification.
We are currently in need of tribal foster parents to care for Oneida Children.
As part of the foster care program, we offer:
- Home visits to explain the licensing process and expectations of being a foster parent
- Training to help prepare you to become a well-informed foster parent
- Access to resources (libraries, additional / on-going training, support services)
- Respite Care
- On-going support when children are placed in your care by a team of caring professionals
If you or someone you know would like to become a licensed Foster Parent, please contact one of our Child Placement Coordinators to learn more!
