The future of the Lummi Nation depends on the wellness and education of our
children, in both the western sense, and in accordance with Lummi culture. The Lummi Child
Welfare Program is charged with a legal obligation in Title 8 of the Lummi Code of Laws to
investigate complaints that Lummi children and children in the Lummi community may not be safe
and/or properly cared for. Child Welfare employees are responsible for performing this legal duty.
The Office Manager for Child Welfare performs an essential role in the success of the Child
Welfare Programs efforts to provide the best possible service to the Lummi People. The Office
Manager greets the public, listens to their needs, and refers them to the proper staff members. The
Office Manager also works closely with employees from other LIBC agencies, and Washington
State Children Administration employees to gather and distribute information. The Office Manager
is responsible for recording and distribution court documents and services provider reports and
completing Personnel Action and Payroll forms. The Office Manger is regularly required to shop
for office and family assistance supplies and arrange for repair of Department vehicles. The Office
Manager will be required to accomplish daily administrative and clerical task that ensure the
smooth operation of the Child Welfare Office.
