 Meskwaki Elders Circle

Elders Circle Logo WebThe Meskwaki Elders Circle (MEC) helps our families who are referred by Meskwaki Nation Child Support Services. When using MEC, an agreement will be reached through consensus on how to best meet the financial and emotional needs of the family and their child (children).

It serves the Tribe’s interest to strengthen families, even those no longer in one household, by opening communication and helping members of those families work together to meet the needs for future generations.
