National Indian Child Abuse and Neglect Resource Center, Tulsa, OK.
Designed to assist Indian tribes and oganizations in the recruitment, training, licensing, and evaluation of Indian foster and adoptive homes, the manual is presented in six sections. The introduction provides a definition for foster care and foster children, along with excerpts from the Bill of Rights for Foster Children. Section I discusses the recruitment of Indian foster families, including a worksheet for planning a recruitment campaign, a list of recruitment possibilities (i.e., television spots, billboards, newsletters, etc.), and an outline of recruiting Indian families into the foster care system. Section II provides a training program for the Indian foster family, and requirements for foster home licensing are outlined in Section III. The evaluation process of Indian foster homes is discussed in Section IV. Section V looks at resources to assist the Indian foster family. A 38-item bibliography on Native American foster and adoptive care concludes the manual. (ERB)
