IT’S ABOUT THE BEST INTEREST OF CHILDREN.
IT’S ABOUT EMPOWERMENT FOR ADULTS.
AN UNSHACKLING FROM VICTIM-HOOD.
Things are not okay – not when there is widespread, yet horribly ignored physical and sexual child abuse occurring every day on reservations across America. Does it happen off the reservation as well? Of course! But that’s another mission and not an excuse to look the other way while documented horrors are happening to children in Indian Country.
It is time to stop it. We often hear the excuse that nothing can be done. “Congress’s hands are tied.” We all know that’s just an excuse from those who are too afraid, too apathetic, or benefiting too much from the status quo to be bothered. It’s time to make children more important than politics and do what is necessary to help and protect them. Would you want your own child to be in the same position some of these children are in, without a hope that anyone is going to help?
WE CARE: The Christian Alliance for Indian Child Welfare (CAICW), formed for Charitable, Religious, and Educational purposes as both a Christian Ministry and a Family Advocacy, is interested in the total well-being of the individual and Family.
CAICW has ministered with music and teaching in Mexico, USA and Canada.
CAICW has advocated since 2004 for families at risk of harm from the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). Our advocacy has been both judicial and educational, as well as a prayer resource for families and a shoulder to cry on.
We also advocate for individuals and parents interested in health, growth and God – yearning for dependence on the Lord and independence from welfare entitlements and control, but who don’t feel like it is an option they can attain easily due to conditions around them or various confines within federal policy. We are here to support, encourage and educate.
We have recently moved the website to a new host. Please be patient with us as we reconnect links and finish putting up pages.
- Roland J. Morris Home: We have begun planning a long term (12 -24 mos) alcohol and drug treatment facility designed to keep the family unit together, allowing parents and guardians to bring their young children with them during treatment while learning parenting and work skills.
- Indian Child Welfare Act: Though ICWA Supporters say safeguards within the Indian Child Welfare Act prevent misuse, scores of multi-racial children have been hurt. Kids, never involved with the reservation, are forcefully removed from safe, loving home and placed with strangers – sometimes unsafe strangers. These children need help.
“…they came on Saturday morning and took him away. He had just celebrated his second birthday and his second Christmas with our family in Colorado. The screams as they took him away will not go away. I hear them everyday and I try to put them out of my head but still each day I hear him scream, “No, Mama, No!”
“I couldn’t protect him.”
