Published: March 21, 2013
The National Resource Center for In-Home Services, with its partner the National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA), helps tribes build capacity to help families heal while their children remain safely at home. For the past several years, in collaboration with the Western and Pacific Child Welfare Implementation Center (WPIC), we have provided training and technical assistance to Alaska Native communities to assist with the development of in-home services models that fit the unique circumstances of their communities and make best use of all of the community's resources to keep children safe and well at home. This webinar described the use of a Tribal In-Home Service Practice Model Planning Template to: Develop a tribal safety and in-home services practice model; Describe key implementation issues such as enhancing tribal child welfare and state child welfare collaborations; and Provide training and technical assistance to tribes to enhance systems collaboration and service delivery. Examples of Tribal In-Home Services model development and implementation are provided by tribal child welfare systems of Central Council Tlingit Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska and the Nome Eskimo Community.
