The National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) provides essential training, advocacy, education, and more to increase the well-being of Native children. They are dedicated to ensuring every Native child has access to community-based, culturally appropriate services that help them grow up safe, healthy, and spiritually strong—free from abuse, neglect, sexual exploitation, and the damaging effects of substance abuse. NICWA is the most comprehensive source of information on American Indian/Alaska Native child welfare.

“In our work dedicated to the well-being of American Indian and Alaska Native children, culture is our strongest resource for helping families,” said NICWA Executive Director Sarah Kastelic (Alutiiq). “Effective child welfare practice serving Native children and families requires culturally relevant resources and methods of delivery. As Native Nonprofit Day exemplifies, Native-led nonprofits are best positioned to draw on our culture to meet the needs of our children, families, and communities.”
