Downloadable Resources Disparity Summary:

More than four in five American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced domestic violence, stalking, rape or psychological aggression by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Some Tribes are able to provide victim service programs, but not all; in fact, Native people have historically lacked access to supportive services such as shelters, legal advocacy and medical services. With few options and resources in their communities, Native victims of intimate partner violence often go without assistance.

In the first year of operations, the StrongHearts Native Helpline developed a referral database of culturally-appropriate and Tribal-based service providers to serve caller needs in a culturally-rooted way. What we have confirmed from gathering and vetting services is that there continues to be a severe resource gap impacting the ability of Tribes to address domestic violence in their communities.
