Services provided by NRC4Tribes

The National Child Welfare Resource Center for Tribes (NRC4Tribes) engages Tribes to increase their access to and use of the T/TA Network, brokers T/TA, assists in the provision of T/TA as needed, facilitates peer-to-peer consultation between Tribes regarding child welfare issues, and increases cultural competence and sensitivity to Tribal voices in the T/TA Network and in State child welfare systems. See our Resource Guide for more information.

The NRC4Tribes addresses child welfare needs identified by Tribes, supports efforts for improved Tribal child welfare practice, and works with Tribal child welfare staff to achieve greater safety, permanency, and well-being for children and families. The NRC4Tribes also promotes the delivery of culturally appropriate services to American Indian and Alaska Native children, youth, and families.
