The Administration for Children and Families, Children's Bureau also just published the Tribal Court Improvement Program FOA! It may be of interest to you.

In other ANA news, I posted a blog on our website to celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Playing sports has had a profound and positive impact on my life. It taught me the importance of teamwork, mentorship, and striving to achieve goals. I hope that sharing my experiences and those of others, leads you to encourage the girls and women in your life to take up a sport.
