Burns Paiute Tribe
The Burns Paiute Tribal domestic violence and sexual assault program will provide outreach, education and training to the Burns Paiute Community. Their priority is to provide victim centered services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, including case management and referrals.
The Healing Lodge of the Seven Nations
The Healing Lodge of the Seven Nations’ project is designed to focus on training staff on domestic violence and sexual assault, and trauma informed care. This training will allow the clinical staff to provide more in-depth direct services to the youth served by this facility and facilitate an understanding on how trauma affects the clinical staff treating the residents.
Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe
The Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe Family Advocacy Program will conduct a community needs assessment to establish baseline data on domestic violence, sexual violence in the Tribal community and provide emergency support to victims/survivors. The Program will facilitate the formation of a Coordinated Community Response Team and provide relevant training as well as work with an attorney to revise the domestic violence code.
Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board
The Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board’s Responses Circles program will provide technical assistance on domestic and sexual violence prevention to the 43 federally-recognized tribes in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. In collaboration with the northwest tribes, the Responses Circles program will work to prevent, support, and heal families impacted by domestic and sexual violence by connecting communities to culturally-appropriate training and resources. The program will offer scholarships for tribal staff and professionals to host or attend trainings, events, social marketing, bootcamps for youth, and/or conferences around domestic and sexual violence. They will amplify positive health messages using We R Native, a multimedia health resource for Native youth.
Nez Perce Tribe
The Nez Perce will establish a community-wide support system based on the Duluth Model of prevention and intervention for victims of domestic or sexual violence, strengthen the Coordinated Community Response Team, provide training to providers, and launch a robust education campaign to encourage survivors to come forward.
The Quileute Tribe’s New Beginnings Program provided culturally appropriate services to victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and raises awareness through culturally appropriate activities. The program has three specific goals: 1) increase the Tribe’s ability to respond to incidents of domestic and sexual violence using an interagency, coordinated approach through the development and implementation of a Quileute Community Intervention Project; 2) maintain and enhance on-site services available to victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault; and 3) expand the Quileute Public Education and Awareness Campaign delivered primarily through school-based and cultural programming components.
