In order for homeless and disadvantaged individuals to become self sufficient and independent, they need to have stability in their lives. This includes housing, freedom from addiction, adequate care for mental illness, a consistent source of income, and a well planned reintegration program into the community. It is our approach to utilize the agencies in the community to provide services for those that come to us in need. We like to say we have a "Native Blanket Toss'' approach to services. The more capable people we surround our clients with, the higher we can launch them. Partnering with other community agencies allows us to focus and to make the best possible use of our resources. Our clients are the ultimate benefactors as they receive meaningful services as well as knowledge of the community service support system.
