Culturally Appropriate Services
Native American Connections furthers the agency commitment to the community with:
CLAS (Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services) and Cultural Competency Committee - meets a minimum of twice annually to ensure that NAC is responsive and sensitive to the needs of special and under-served populations. The Committee reviews staff demographic make-up against client demographic make-up to ensure staff closely mirrors the clientele served.
Annual staff training on the Gathering of Native Americans (GONA) - which brings together staff, Native and non-Native, to learn how historical events and trauma of Native people continues to impact the individual, family, and community today. Participants also learn new skills and ways to restore balance in our families, our communities, and ourselves, and to plan ways to prevent substance use through increased collaboration and resources.
Recovery and Peer Committee includes former program beneficiaries to advise NAC leadership on identified community needs and gaps in services around recovery services and ending homelessness.
Annual Staff Training including Trauma Informed Care, Positive Indian Parenting, Healthy Relationships, Red Road/White Bison, and NAC’s practice based program, Circle of Strength.
