Tribal Best Practices for Family Engagement

The Tribal Best Practices for Family Engagement Toolkit is created to inform and enrich the family advocate’s capacity when engaging Indian families in Systems of Care (SOC). The content is developed by Indian people for Indian people, however many of the concepts and ideas included can be adapted to serve any community seeking to enhance family engagement. This document outlines a basic family engagement framework for how families could be involved at all levels of the SOC structure that can be helpful when a grantee is envisioning, conceptualizing and implementing family engagement within its SOC. While every SOC community will have a tailored approach to family engagement, this document offers strategies, ideas, and tools for family advocates to support Indian Families within any SOC framework.
