Mission Statement

  • Tuwaduq Family Services is dedicated to the promotion of social, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of the present and future generations; building toward an independent, healthy nation that preserves the traditional values, culture and customs of the Tuwaduq people. Tuwaduq Family Services will provide programs and services to children, youth, families and community designed to create a self-reliant and self-sufficient Skokomish Tuwaduq Nation.

Our goal is to develop wrap-around programs that provide an array of services in one facility.
