In May 2016, Mending the Sacred Hoop facilitated the OVW Tribal Technical Assistance Providers Roundtable in Duluth. At this meeting, it was recommended the 2014 OVW Technical Assistance Provider Fact Sheet be revised as information has changed over the years. The revised “OVW Tribal Technical Assistance Providers and Tribal Coalition Service Directory” is attached.
What’s new? Thirty-eight (38) pages of important information including an updated cover, profiles of the national tribal domestic violence and sexual assault coalitions with contact information, a tribal coalition map, and specifics of training and technical assistance expertise available from the current OVW-funded national tribal domestic violence and sexual assault coalition tribal technical assistance providers and their contacts.
The most up to date directory can be accessed at First Nations Help Desk website at www.firstnations.org/helpdesk, or if you prefer a PDF version to download or print, click here: http://www.firstnations.org/sites/default/files/%2A/OVW_TA_Directory_2.pdf.
We would like to thank all who submitted updated narratives, photographs and other content to this latest edition. We wish to thank Vicky Urbanez at Red Wind Consulting who researched information, pieced everything together, and added her valuable insights into this project.
Finally, a big thanks to the DOJ-OVW Tribal Unit for their financial support in the creation of a revised directory.
Thank you, Montoya Whiteman.
