Santa Clara Pueblo Social Services objective is to improve the quality of life for tribal members of Santa Clara Pueblo. The Santa Clara Pueblo Social Services Program and the ICWA (Indian Child Welfare Act) promotes the protection and welfare of children, the elderly and families to prevent the abuse, neglect or exploitation. The overall objective of our Program is to provide child abuse & neglect services; adults in need of assistance; and adults under legal disability. Social Services also supports at-risk families to allow children to remain with their families.
