Improving the Well-being of American Indian and Alaska Native Children and Families through State-Level Efforts to Improve Indian Child Welfare Act Compliance
Handel Information Technologies began working with the Tachi-Yokut Tribe in 2012 when RiteTrack was deployed for the Enrollment Department. This implementation will now become an integrated solution as the CPS/ICW Module is deployed for the Tribal Social Services Department. We look forward to RiteTrack becoming an essential tool for the important work done by Tachi-Yokut Social Services staff.
In this new video, Handel employees discuss what it is like working at Handel, living in Wyoming, implementing RiteTrack and the secret to our success in implementing our software solution for tribal, county, and state government.
Handel Information Technologies, Inc. is currently developing and implementing RiteTrack for the Northeastern Nevada Tribal TANF Consortium (NNTTC).
Handel’s integrative, flexible solution will be the perfect fit for the NNTTC because RiteTrack will allow the nine consortium member tribes to input data while maintaining tribal member confidentiality.
One reason the NNTTC decided to partner with Handel is that RiteTrack offers the required, complex security. This security is needed to keep member data confidential in the system between the tribes.
The consortium will submit one federal TANF report with the combined data from all nine tribes using the TANF funds. Programs like the NNTTC’s TANF program are making a difference in tribal nations and families every day. Handel is proud to help support that mission.
The nine tribes or bands that comprise the NNTTC including the Ely Shoshone Tribe, Duckwater Shoshone Tribe, Confederated Tribes of Goshute, Elko Band, Wells Band, South Fork Band, Battle Mountain Band, Duck Valley Sho-Pai, and the Temoke Tribe.
RiteTrack is software for tribal, state, and county governments. Handel works with tribal nations across the country in many tribal departments. Handel is an experienced, trustworthy technology company that goes above and beyond in serving American Indian Tribes and specializes in designing the best possible software solutions for American Indian social service agencies.
In a renewed private-public partnership, the Office of Justice Programs’ Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation are jointly providing $2 million to advance juvenile justice reform.
OJJDP and the MacArthur Foundation will each provide two years of funding at $125,000 per year
to four organizations–the Center for Children’s Law and Policy;the National Youth Screening and Assessment Project at the University of Massachusetts Medical School; the National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice at Policy Research, Inc.; and the Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice–to support innovative reforms in treatment and services for youth.

The center’s new course will help individuals develop effective and sustainable programs for reducing juvenile crimes and increasing youth potential in tribal communities.
An amicus brief filed by the Justice Department, the first time it was weighed in on a federal district court case involving ICWA, concludes Native American parents’ rights are being violated by South Dakota. Tribes in the state have filed a class-action lawsuit alleging that Native children are being placed indiscriminately in non-tribal foster care without familial involvement or representation. This year the Lakota People’s Law Project has assisted 7 of South Dakota’s 9 tribes in applying for federal planning grants to develop their own foster care programs in efforts to curtail the practice.
We are very excited to be live on our new web site. Our old DotNetNuke web site has served us well for the past 7 years but it was time to move on.
