Tribal Programs Harness Cultural Strengths to Improve Conditions for Families and Youth


The United Nation Indian Tribal Youth (UNITY), Inc. and a number of Tribal and non-Tribal organizations across the Nation are working with the U.S. Administration for Children and Families (ACF), and its Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), in a collaborative effort to build upon the strengths of Native youth and their families.

This issue of The Exchange highlights a number of initiatives around the country that look to harness cultural strengths of Native Tribal communities to improve conditions for families and youth. Some of the programs that are highlighted include: Host homes for Native Americans, domestic violence shelters on Native American land, and the Mentoring Children of Prisoner’s program.
