Our Mission to Enhance Self-Reliance...

"Self-Reliance, Self Sufficiency and Developing Strong People."


Providing opportunities for personal growth through education, training and employment is a high priority of the Social and Community Services Department. Our After School Program for elementary school children has expanded its services to include a Homework Helper class. Children receive individual attention and assistance from the program staff and volunteers.


Our Youth Empowerment helps spark the interest of middle school students in exploring career possibilities through field trips to local businesses. Business owners and their employees have been gracious hosts and have helped expand the horizons for our young students.


The Tribal Education program provides a number of services to Tribal citizens. High School Graduate Scholarships are provided to graduating high school seniors who plan to attend college. Higher Education Grants are available to full time students attending a vocational training program, a community college or a four-year college or university. The Adult Alternative Education program provides financial assistance for Tribal citizens who participate in short courses, workshops, seminars and other training that will improve job skills and employability.


The Employment and Training program provides work experience, on-the-job training and classroom training for youth and adults. The Summer Youth Employment program provides opportunities for youth to work for the Tribe in a variety of positions within all Tribal departments. The Tribes participation in the Western Washington Indian Employment & Training program consortium provides funding for classroom training, work experience and on-the-job training for adults. Work experience and training are provided at the Tribal Center, the Casino and other Tribal enterprises, and with employers in the local communities. Our Employment Counselor also assists Tribal citizens with work search and job placement.


A number of Economic Support Services are provided to assist Tribal citizens while they are participating in education and training programs and to support working families. The General Assistance program provides financial assistance to help pay for essential needs when an individual is working on a plan to increase financial independence by becoming employed. The Childcare Voucher program provides financial assistance to help pay for the cost of childcare for families when the parent(s) are working, participating in training or attending school. Childcare subsidies are paid to licensed childcare providers and relatives. The Energy Assistance program helps pay for the cost of home heating during the winter months for any eligible Tribal citizen.
