Services Provided: The Children’s Alliance of Montana (CAM) is a membership, training and technical assistance organization dedicated to providing support and promoting best practices to Montana communities to strengthen their response to child abuse. CAM promotes the development of Multidisciplinary Teams and Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs). CAM is an accredited chapter of the National Children’s Alliance. CAM supports multidisciplinary team professionals by providing training, scholarships and technical assistance.
CAM promotes that specially trained professionals conduct forensic interviews of children at CAC or in child-friendly, non-threatening environments. The goal is to minimize trauma to the child and reduce the number of times a child must talk about his/her experiences. CACs also provide children with access to specially trained, local medical professionals who conduct evaluations to safeguard children’s health and to collect and preserve evidence to hold offenders accountable. CACs provide referrals to children and non-offending caregivers for trauma informed mental health therapy.

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.
