Kawerak is working to expand the network of foster families around the Norton Sound with the goal of keeping children within their culture.  A main objective is to reunifty the families while providing for the child's well being during difficult times. Local foster families play a much-needed role in the children's lives at a critical time. The application process is extensive, but there are resources at Kawerak and other organizations to help families through the process and support them as they take in foster children.
