The mission of the Counseling and Family Services Department is to provide for the health, safety and welfare of the families and children of the Klamath Tribes. Indian Child Welfare Act issues, family violence issues, the Tribal Work Assistance program, TEAM, NAFA (Native American Family Assistance) and the Family Support Center are the programs this department manages. They are also planning to develop a protective services program, to assume the case management of children who have been abused or neglected, and to assume responsibility for temporary assistance to needy Tribal families in Klamath County from the Oregon State Adult and Family Services Department.
The Counseling and Family Services Department is also developing a Tribal court system, so the Tribes can assume jurisdiction over Tribal children.
