The Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework, developed by the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), has played a significant role in how child- and family-serving programs operate and support healthy development and wellbeing. A survey was developed, adminstered and analyzed to support the many partners and members of the Strengthening Families National Network as they became interested in looking beyond programs and services to apply a Protective Factors approach to transform their communities, address root causes of adversity, and advance equity and social justice. Many partner organizations were interested in a distinct “community Protective Factors” framework that focused on community strengths, to increase the likelihood that children and families can thrive and decrease the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. The results of the survey are outlined in this report.

This report provides a snapshot of CDC's work in Indian Country, with tribal nations, tribal organizations, and American Indians and Alaska Natives across the United States. The CDC's Tribal Advisory Committee (TAC) asked CDC to prepare a booklet highlighting the work being done in Indian Country as part of a broader portfolio to improve health and protect against health threats. American Indians and Alaska Natives have higher rates of disease, injury, and premature death than other racial and ethnic groups in the United States. Many Native populations also have higher rates of poverty, unemployment, poor housing, and low education, among other adversities. These afflictions result from historical insults and injustices, perpetrated over many generations. CDC works with and supports American Indian tribes, Alaska Native villages, tribal organizations, and Tribal Epidemiology Centers to promote health, prevent disease, reduce health disparities, and strengthen connections to culture and lifeways that improve health and wellness that have been threatened over generations. CDC’s work with and support of Indian Country to improve the lives of Native peoples is reflected in this report.
