About Tribal TANF Professional Development

Building on Strengths and Resources of Native Cultures

Tribal TANF programs have the opportunity to improve the lives of Native people, families and communities. It takes skilled managers and staff to address the complex and unique needs of American Indians.

The Center for Human Services offers Tribal TANF Professional Development to help tribes build staff skills, deliver appropriate services and strengthen families and communities.

All training and services are infused with cultural values and principles specific to American Indian culture.

Staff work closely with sponsoring Tribal TANF programs to assess needs and tailor training and services to specific tribal cultures.

All instructors and consultants have extensive experience working with Tribal TANF programs. With diverse cultural backgrounds, trainers have been selected for their knowledge, training skills and respect for Indian culture.
