🚴♂️🚴♀️😁ALL CHILDREN MATTER BIKE GIVE AWAY EVENT😁🚴♀️🚴♂️
****SHARE TO YOUR RELATIVES!!!! PLEASE DON'T TAG THEM IN THE POSTS*****
Donated bikes are being dropped off this week in preparation for the All Children Matter Bike Giveaway.
Assembled bikes can be dropped off at the Cliff Webster Building (Hwy H) N6457 County Hwy H, De Pere, WI on Wednesday July 21 from 5-7 p.m. and Friday July 23 from 8-10 a.m.
In May 2021, a mass grave containing the remains of 215 children were found in Canada. These children were residents at the Kamloops Indian School in British Columbia. Since this discovery, sadly, the numbers continue to rise as the remains of many Indian residential children are being revealed.
Our community along with many Nations across Turtle Island share this grief, sorrow and loss.
In honor of the many children that lost their lives, Oneida Family Services in collaboration with Oneida Economic Support, Oneida Recreation and Oneida Aging and Disability would like to host a Community Bike Giveaway. We are reaching out to community members, programs, and departments to graciously ask for sponsors to purchase new bikes.
We have a goal of collecting 250 bikes ( all sizes) for boys and girls. Bikes can also be sponsored in someone’s name. A drive through event will be held to collect raffle tickets then the bikes will be raffled off to children in the Oneida community. It is our hope that the bikes will spark joy and happiness for children in an already difficult time. This event is to promote community healing and wellness for all.
We plan to host the drive through event on July 29, 2021 3:30-5:30 behind the Social Services Building.
The raffle drawing will be held virtually the next day at 11:00 a.m. and the winners will be notified about pick up dates and times. All sponsors of bikes will be acknowledged on our webpage, communications and Kalihwisaks paper. We invite you to take part in our event and sponsor a bike for one of our youth. Thank you

National Foster Care Month - Child Welfare Information Gateway
May is National Foster Care Month, which is a time to acknowledge families and professionals who help children and youth in foster care find permanent homes and connections. Learn how foster care is a support to families, not a substitute for parents.
Please contact us to learn more about fostering!
There are over 423,000 children and youth in foster care in our nation, with 7,000 of those in Wisconsin. That number seems hard to fathom. We know that each one of these children has a story. May is the month we shine a light on these children's stories, as well as on all the foster and birth families, relative caregivers, professionals, volunteers, policymakers, and other members of our communities involved with foster care. Read more in this week's Coalition Connection: https://conta.cc/3eICV1g
Getting started as a foster parent comes with a host of questions. Our FREE information packet has been specifically designed to provide you with information about foster care. As you read through the steps involved, keep in mind that the staff of the Coalition for Children, Youth, and Families are here to support, encourage, and assist you throughout your journey.

Oneida Nation Foster Care
Foster Homes Needed
Oneida Nation Foster Care Program is a state licensed, tribal run Child Placing Agency developed to facilitate out of home placements for Oneida Children when family is unavailable. In Wisconsin, there are more American Indian children in foster care than there are licensed American Indian foster parents. Without your help, children are at risk of being placed outside of their communities and/or away from their tribes, thus creating more barriers to reunification. Please take the time to understand the need we have for more Oneida Foster home. We are always looking for homes to care for children of all ages, genders, and individuals or sibling groups. However, potential foster parents can determine what special considerations will work for them. If you have any questions and/or would like to learn more about becoming a foster home. Please do not hesitate to call 490-3707 or 490-3822
As part of the foster care program, we offer:
• Foster care training to help prepare you to become a well-informed foster parent
• Foster Care Coordinator visits and will explain step by step the process and expectations in becoming foster parent
• Opportunities to ongoing training to keep you up to date on foster care changes and trends
• Resource Library
• Respite Care
• On-going support team which includes an Indian Child Welfare Social Worker and County Social Worker

Every day foster parents make a difference in children's lives! If you have ever been interested in learning more about fostering and/or respite care, please call Lea 920-490-3822 or Kathleen at 920-490-3707 or send us a message. We can discuss the process and answer any questions.
Foster Care: Foster care is home-like care provided by licensed foster parents for children who cannot live with their parents because they:
• are unsafe
• have special care or treatment needs that their parents are unable to manage
• other circumstances resulting in their parents or family being unable to care for them.
Placement in foster care is usually temporary and gives families time to make necessary changes so the child can safely live in his or her home and community.
Respite Care: Respite care provides parents and other caregivers with short-term child care services that offer temporary relief, improve family stability, and reduce the risk of abuse or neglect. Respite can be planned or offered during emergencies or times of crisis.
Your choice to become a licensed foster care or respite care provider enhances the ability to keep Oneida children connected to their family, community, culture and identity.
