Services Provided: Information and Resources for:
Child Abuse and Neglect
ICWA
Foster Care and Adoption
Children's Mental
Youth Engagement

NICWA works to support the safety, health, well-being, and spiritual strength of American Indian/Alaska Native children along the broad continuum of their lives. Our programming is centered on how to address structural risk—the conditions, like poverty and untreated parental mental health issues, that put families at risk for child abuse and neglect. In addition to prevention, we influence and inform the policy and practices of the tribal and state systems that respond to child abuse and neglect: child welfare, law enforcement, family support, and physical and behavioral health. Finally, as well-intentioned as systems’ interventions are, there are real consequences for children and families to the way that systems respond to child abuse and neglect. Our work includes addressing potential outcomes of system intervention through providing support and technical assistance in children’s mental health and juvenile justice programs and systems.

Services for families:

Resources for Tribal Leaders:
