TI•WA•HE | dee – wah – hay |
Tiwahe is a Lakota word that refers to “family” or those living together in one home or dwelling. As a Tiwahe demonstration site, AVCP has incorporated the Tiwahe model which takes a comprehensive and culturally appropriate approach to metrics that measure the impact of our services on our families and communities.
Thanks to the Tiwahe Initiative AVCP was able to envision and create the Family Service Center and Tribal Resource Center. This new service delivery model improves access to family and social service programs in the AVCP region. In August 2015, the AVCP Executive Board passed a resolution in support of participation and an organizational commitment to Tiwahe.
