Indian Child Welfare

The Indian Child Welfare Program provides services to at-risk Thlopthlocco families in order to prevent removal of a child from their family.

The Safe and Stable Families Program provides family preservation and support services to Native Americans residing within Okmulgee, Okfuskee and Hughes counties with a priority for Thlopthlocco Tribal Town families which include:

  • Intake for child abuse / neglect reporting
  • Budgeting education
  • Parenting skills
  • Health and Nutrition education
  • Writing resumes
  • Limited financial assistance

Participants will be placed on a Voluntary Service Plan for 60 - 120 days depending on their family needs. The Social Worker will conduct regular home visits to monitor their progress and assure that family needs are met.
