The Tribal Family Advocate and Prevention Social Worker works together with Social Services programs to help respond to, and prevent, domestic violence and child maltreatment. In this capacity, the Social Worker will play a critical role in arranging services among multiple service providers for clients.
The Social Worker also provides input into the development of Bureau-wide practices and procedures to ensure compliance and accountability with 25 CFR Part 20. Serving as the liaison between the Tribe, BIA Regional Office, Office of Justice Service, Bureau of Indian Education and other Federal agencies, the Social Worker coordinates resources and services for healthier and safer American Indian and Alaskan Native families.
The activities of the Social Worker will also include community-wide prevention efforts to educate the population regarding abuse, exploitation of vulnerable children, while also providing information to tribal members about other social services agencies and the community at large.
This service is available for elders living inside the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes’ tribal boundaries and the city of Woodward.
