  • Maintain tribal specific resources and services to meet the needs of populations who may use this tool.
  • Submit letters of support or referral, as needed, at the discretion of the project team.
How are organizational records kept private?

It is the goal of the Tribal Resource Tool to openly share as much data regarding tribal victim services with the field as possible. This allows the field to avoid “siloing” of information critical to providing referrals to victim services.

  • Each organization’s record may contain both public and private “internal only” contact and referral information.
  • All information included in the application to the Tribal Resource Tool will be made public unless marked as “internal only”. Any internal contact information will be accessible to project staff only.
  • All public information provided to the Tribal Resource Tool may be shared with outside agencies, as requested.
  • Organizations will have the option to share both public and private contact and referral information with the StrongHeart Native Helpline staff.
What are the quality assurance methods?
  • Project staff reserve the right to remove an organization from the online tool at their discretion and without warning. Examples of grounds for removal include, but are not limited to:
    • allegations of misconduct,
    • feedback from those seeking services that a provider is unresponsive,
    • inability to reach the designated point of contact after multiple attempts, or
    • failure of the organization to meet the minimum inclusion requirements or responsibilities.
  • Any organization may likewise request to be removed from the Tribal Resource Tool at any time.

Inclusion in the Tribal Resource Tool is at the sole discretion of the project staff.
