OUR PROGRAMS AND SERVICES IMPACT 250,000 NATIVE AMERICANS ON RESERVATIONS ACROSS THE U.S.
Program EffectivenessView All
Partnership With Native Americans, formerly National Relief Charities, has a program logic model that guides our work. It centers around the change that occurs for tribal community partners that work with PWNA. The logic model shows that, as these reservation-based partners become more effective, they are more likely to create positive impact for their communities.
This moves us toward our vision of strong, self-sufficient Native American communities, and it underscores the need for PWNA to maintain long-term relationships, high customer satisfaction and continuous feedback from our partners. View our GuideStar profile
Impact of our Material ServicesLearn About Our Material Services Impact
PWNA’s “Material Services” focus on immediate needs related to nutrition, health, education, emergency relief, holiday support and animal welfare. In collaboration with our reservation program partners, PWNA provides essential supplies and seasonal services for immediate relief in hundreds of tribal communities across the Northern Plains and Southwest reservations.
Yet, even as we are serving immediate needs, we are also having a longer-term impact, and we measure this through an annual survey to our entire base of program partners to understand gains they have made by working with us. Our annual survey response rate is higher than 50% and the results show that PWNA has a positive impact on our partners and their ability to better serve their communities, as our graphic shows.

PWNA’s long-term services are designed to support the self-determined initiatives of reservation partners and other local leaders who are working for sustainable gains in their communities. While our Long-Term Solutions are relatively new offerings in our 25+ year history of serving Indian Country, they are already yielding positive outcomes for partners, participants and communities on the reservations PWNA serves.
