The Weaving Healthy Families Program is Recruiting!


We are recruiting Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indian (MBCI) families for the

Weaving Healthy Families (WHF) Program (Chukka Auchaffi’ Natana [in Choctaw])


The WHF program strengthens family resilience and prevents substance abuse and violence.



All MBCI families (at least one parent who is MBCI) with a child in the household age 12-17 are eligible

(all family and household members can participate though).


When we begin to meet in person, each of the paid 10, 2 ½ hour sessions begins with a free family dinner, learning with peers,

and ends with connecting with your families. If you participate each of your family members will complete paid online

1-2 hour surveys before, during, after, and 6, 9, and 12 months after the program.

Payments are $50 for each participant’s completed surveys.

Also, your family will receive $50 for each of the 10 WHF sessions you attend after the head of household

completes the session follow-up survey.

Each person who finish the WHF program are paid AT LEAST $300, plus the $500 paid to families,

the $20 for each “spot check” & $50 for any more interviews.

Also, if you are looking for part-time work and would like to help us facilitate the program,
