Local Action to Improve Child Welfare

Local Action to Improve Child Welfare

Over the last several years, NICWA members have asked how they can be more involved in strengthening Indian child welfare–nationally and at home. Beyond staying informed by reading publications or attending trainings, members want to take action to effect change locally for their community’s children and families. We want to help members do just that. Help us empower families, programs, and tribes by participating in a consultation as we are developing a Member Activation Indian Child Welfare Toolkit. The products and outcomes of this joint work will be rolled out to members in communities across the nation in early 2019.

 

We want to know: What are tribes or communities doing locally to bring about change for Indian child welfare?
