American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) have the highest crime victimization rates in the nation but often have difficulty connecting with the services that exist to help them recover from crime and abuse. The National Congress of American Indians, the Tribal Law and Policy Institute, and the National Center for Victims of Crime, with input and guidance of tribal stakeholders across the nation, has created a web-based resource mapping tool. The Tribal Resource Tool provides a list of all services available for AI/AN survivors of crime and abuse, and helps identify gaps in services so those can be addressed via its searchable database.
The Tribal Resource Tool provides services for:
- All ages of AI/AN survivors and victims
- All forms of victimization
- All locations (on or off reservations, in areas that are remote, rural, urban, or suburban)
- All needs of victims, including justice, safety, healing, and support
