The mission of the Oklahoma Indian Child Welfare Association (OICWA) is to promote the well-being of American Indian children, their families, and their tribes. As a voice for the Indian Child Welfare programs in Oklahoma, OICWA strives to protect the most vital resource of Indian tribes in Oklahoma - their children - through advocacy, training, and education. OICWA has served a vital role in efforts to improve policy, programs, and services and has been instrumental in identifying available resources and tools to enhance current and future planning efforts for compliance and sustainable practice changes.

The Arnall Community Funds are administered through Oklahoma City Community Foundation (OCCF) and provide grants to nonprofit organizations throughout the state of Oklahoma that are working to improve outcomes for individuals, children and families involved with animal welfare and in the child welfare and criminal justice systems. The OCCF staff will manage the grant administration process and all grantmaking decisions will be made by OCCF Trustees. Learn more about the process.
