Circles of Care
Circles of Care is a 3-year grant project funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) that draws on the system of care philosophy and principles as defined by our network of community-based services and supports efforts that are organized to meet the challenges of our American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) community.
Our project goal is to build a coalition and partnerships with community members, organizations, and service delivery providers to improve and develop a comprehensive, integrated, culturally responsive system of care for our AI/AN children, youth, and families in King County.
Our Native youth will have more opportunities and pathways for success to achieve wellness, balance and meet their full potential resulting in empowered youth and positive social change for today and future generations.
