The mission of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Certification, Placement, Recruitment & Training(CPRT) program shall be to to find tribal families to nurture and meet the needs of our Muscogee (Creek) Nation children who have been placed into custody by either the state or tribal courts.  We will provide assistance in completing the application and will provide foster care training. provide a stable, caring, and nurturing home for any Muscogee (Creek) child whose safety cannot be assured in his or her own home due to the risk of child abuse or neglect.

The purpose of the CPRT program is to protect the best interests of Muscogee (Creek) children and to promote the stability and security of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation through the licensing of tribal resource homes.  The CPRT program shall recruit, train and certify Muscogee (Creek) and/or other Native American families to provide placement for care of abused and/or neglected children in the custody of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, the State of Oklahoma, or other tribal or state agencies. These resource homes can serve as either emergency placement, long-term placement or as respite care for other resource families.
