Updates on the Gatherings

On behalf of everyone who contributed so much time and effort in planning and preparing for the Fostering Connections Tribal Gatherings, including the Children’s Bureau and Regional Office partners, as well as the Children’s Bureau T&TA Network - we would like to thank you so much for your participation. We hope that the presentations and breakout sessions provided 'food for thought' as you consider how the Fostering Connections legislation might benefit tribal communities.

There are many resources available through the Children's Bureau's National Training and Technical Assistance Network. The NRC4Tribes is available to assist tribes directly or help tribes connect with other T&TA Network partners and resources within the Children's Bureau. We look forward to serving as an ongoing resource to tribal child welfare programs.

Meanwhile, many people asked for the PowerPoint presentations from the gathering. We have posted the following PowerPoint presentations below:
  • Listening to the Community
  • Customary Adoption
  • Fostering Connections and Title IV-E
  • Judge William Thorne, ICWA and Fostering Connections
  • Dr. Eddie Brown, Moving Your Community Forward
As we mentioned during the Gathering, both the Executive Summary and the full Findings report from the NRC4Tribes Technical Assistance Needs Assessment are now available online through the NRC4Tribes website.

Thank you again for taking the time to be with us at these gatherings. Along with our planning partners at the National Resource Center for Organizational Improvement and the National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections, it was our honor to host you at the Fostering Connections meetings.

Sincerely,
Kathy Deserly, Associate Director and Jerry Gardner, Director
NRC4Tribes
