The Social Services Department acknowledges that families are our most valuable resource. The department envisions a strong family-oriented society that is achieved through youth and family programs, relationship building and healthy lifestyles. Our vision for the Social Service Department is to offer a wide range of programs and services to assist and enhance life opportunities for our tribal families.
