Bane, William; Goodluck, Charlotte
This document was produced by the Family Resource Center, a federally funded project designed to develop and share resources and information on youth services, child abuse and neglect, and child welfare in Region VIII, which includes Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana. This resource guide contains introductory statistical information on the Indian population and state foster care of Indian children in the region. The major part of the guide lists resources pertaining to services for American Indian youth. The listings in the resource guide pertain to various topic areas, such as strengthening Indian families and youth, strengthening Indian identity, youth participation and development, teen parenting among Indian youth, youth abuse and neglect among American Indians, drug abuse and Indian youth, delinquency and status offenders, runaways, residential treatment facilities, independent living programs and emancipation services, and suicide among Indian youth. Each listing contains names and addresses of national resources, specific Indian programs, contacts in and out of the region, ideas for funding sources, and a bibliography. Six selected youth programs in Region VIII that serve Indian youth are described in the last section of the guide. (ERB)
