Wisconsin tribes form child welfare partnership

All 11 Wisconsin tribes have formed a new partnership to provide training for Indian child welfare workers.

The Intertribal Child Welfare Training Partnership began on June 1. The group arose when tribal child welfare directors saw few opportunities for training of tribal workers.

The partnership will work in conjunction with the Northeast Wisconsin Partnership for Children and Families at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
