The Center for Tribes supports American Indian and Alaska Native child welfare programs that receive Title IV-B or IV-E funding.
Universal services are designed to spread useful information and practical resources to Tribal child welfare program professionals across the country. Products developed by the Center – web content, electronic publications, and others – support busy child welfare leaders who need useful, timely information about promising practices. View some of our publications.
Targeted services are designed to engage specific groups of child welfare leaders. These services build knowledge and skills and foster communication and supportive relationships among child welfare agencies. Virtual communities of practice, online learning courses, training academies, and facilitated peer networking activities promote learning and connections between peers who face similar issues and challenges.
Tailored services provide individual technical assistance and support with Tribal child welfare programs to enhance their capacity through organizational change and system improvement. Training, coaching, consultation, and other services help agencies to assess their needs, develop or enhance their capacities to improve performance and services, and achieve positive outcomes for children and families.
Focused assistance for Tribal Title IV-E programs (either direct Title IV-E or through Tribal-State agreements).
The Center for Tribes has a team of Tribal child welfare specialists who work with Tribal child welfare programs to help assess their needs and work together to address those needs. Services are free and by request.
