About The Agave Project
The Agave Project aims to bring education and awareness to the Native communities in an effort to improve responses to victimization and improve access to Native resources and community partners. To address cultural barriers and provide victim safety, The Agave Project works in collaboration with the Intertribal Court of Southern California, community partners, and service providers to assist children, youth, families, and adults/elders. Services are available to ICSC member tribes and their families.
Targeted victim services address child welfare cases, domestic violence/ intimate partner violence (DV/IPV), and elder protective services; youth services focus on adolescent victimization (dating violence, bullying, and interpersonal violence) and more.
Advocacy and Support
Safety is an important aspect of victim-centered interventions. Support should be dignified and compassionate. Our staff are advocates who can assist with culturally sensitive referrals and support in a judgment-free and confidential environment. Our services are free, and more importantly, confidential.
The Agave Project provides Advocacy and Support within each of our targeted areas, which include:
Guidance within the Tribal Court System.
Referrals for DV/IPV to our community partners.
Education and Vocational support and opportunities.
Immediate service referrals and more.
