Opportunities Not Opioids Scholarship
Throughout our community we have lost many youth to opioid misuse and abuse. ICFPP's goal is to raise awareness about substance misuse and to provide alternative opportunities for youth to build self-confidence, self-awareness, empowerment, and a positive outlook on life.
Four Native Youth (age 13-24) will receive a $500 scholarship to support educational, athletic, or academic enrichment activities. All applications will be reviewed by the ICFPP Scholarship Committee. Applications can be found HERE or HERE (fillable PDF) and can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
Foster parenting is an old concept for the Indian community. Generations ago, Indian foster parents were simply called "extended family". Without extended family, we could not have maintained our valuable Indian traditions. Providing foster care is a fulfilling and meaningful family experience.
ICFPP recruits and offers assistance to interested people seeking to become licensed to care for Indian children. This includes payment of application fees, assistance with the completion of application, paperwork and interface with licensing departments to comply with the rigid background processes.

Foster Parent Recruitment
ICFPP needs you. When our Indian children are removed from their homes, we need Tribally Approved Homes to provide care.
Requirements - 18 years of age, can pass a background check*, have a home to approve.
* If there are things in your criminal background, ICFPP may be able to help exempt the offense(s).
Opioid Overdose Prevention
ICFPP received the Opioid Overdose Prevention Grant from the California Rural Indian Health Board to help spread education around opioid misuse and prevention.
We hosted a youth prevention series over zoom that completed in May 2022. ICFPP will be partnering with the Sonoma County Indian Health Project to support a Youth Big Time July 23rd at Keiser Park in Windsor, CA.

ICFPP is grateful for our community members generosity to build a "Pantry" where families in need can 'shop' for clothing, diapers and wipes, school supplies, and other household items.

Dreamz Not Drugz
In an effort to address substance use and abuse in our community, Dreamz Not Drugz in an annual Native you and family campout designed to offer ongoing access and cultural experiences for traditional, hands-on activities. It also allows youth to build a safe supportive network of peers, adults and service providers.
Each year we focus on a community driven need and address health and wellness for our families.
We have postponed Dreamz Not Drugz due to COVID-19 precautions since 2020. We look forward to reestablishing in Summer 2023.
