Tribal Home Visiting Programs: Stories of Resilience & Hope

The stories in this collection illustrate the positive impact of home visiting programs provided to American Indian and Alaska Native families by Tribal MIECHV grantees across the country. The stories were collected from 2015-2019 through interviews with families and staff from 14 Tribal MIECHV programs. The stories highlight that services offered by grantees are an extension of the support that tribal communities have been providing to pregnant women and families with young children for generations. These stories capture a few key themes found in tribal home visiting including: the importance of listening to families and supporting healthy relationships, the value of incorporating culture, the creativity of programs to support families in meeting basic needs and the inspired work required of staff and their stakeholders to improve early childhood systems.

We thank the following grantees and their program participants for sharing their stories through this compendium: Cherokee Nation, Choctaw Nation, Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan, Lake County Tribal Health, Native American Parent Professional Resources, Native Health, Inc., Northern Arapaho Tribe, Riverside-San Bernardino County Indian Health, San Felipe Pueblo, Southcentral Foundation, White Earth Nation and Yerington Paiute Tribe.
