Foster Care & Adoption Program

Chickasaw Nation Citizen Benefits

The Foster Care and Adoption Program was developed to provide temporary or permanent care for Native American children placed into tribal or state custody. The need for foster care and adoptive homes is tremendous and the Chickasaw Nation continuously seeks applicants who can meet the requirements for certification through the tribe. With the support of the Chickasaw Nation and loving foster or adoptive parents, children removed from traumatic situations can learn to trust again.
