Our plans are to broaden children services who are at risk, high risk
and require education and mental health service for child trauma. Statistically,
the highest rate of abuse is committed against children with special needs. NTCCF
funding sources are Indian Health Services, Bureau of Indian Affairs and Navajo
Nation General Funds.The funding is from the Family Violence Prevention Services
Act. Our Program budgeting decisions are to be ethical, honest, accountable to our
funding sources, and always consider how they affect the safety, the rights of clients
and well-being of the Navajo children and families that we serve. To look for internal
efficiencies. Avoid duplication. Stop performing unproductive activities.
The NTCCF and staff must at all times serve in an ethical, strengths-based,
client-centered, and respectful manner to clients, the community, the resources
in a collaborative manner to accommodate clients needs. Staff must advocate and
believe in the clients’ capabilities to self-determination and empowerment. Be culturally
sensitive and aware that consumers have their own beliefs will be respectful of
their cultural values and practices. All staff are required to have fingerprinting
and criminal background checks. At all times staff will have hope for children,
and their families, to improve and to change their circumstances in a partnership
and in the least restrictive manner. At all times do no harm.
