Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) Liaison

Federal and State Law require that child welfare agencies make "active efforts" to prevent the breakup of Native American families. This requires that county agencies actively engage the family's tribe when working with Native American families in their jurisdictions.

If you are a Tribe looking to connect with our Agency, please feel free to reach out to our ICWA Liaison:
