The National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) has provided Child & Family the final report for the program review. The report has made several suggestions to strengthen our efforts, including: updating the Seneca Nation Child Welfare Law, policies & procedures, and continuing staff training. Child & Family will be formulating a plan to enhance existing efforts while improving prevention initiatives. As a next step, we will be seeking community input at our local events to help formulate prevention plans that keep Seneca children safe.
We welcomed the National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) to territory to conduct an impartial program review of our Child and Family Services (CFS) department. NICWA has been meeting with various departments, community members and most recently with Council to gather information about Child and Family Services.
Child & Family Services is excited to announce that the National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) will be conducting a thorough program evaluation/review. Child & Family Services has requested this evaluation/review in an effort for outside expert feedback on areas of strength and direction for continued program improvement.
