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 distributing court documents and service provider reports and completing Personnel Action and Payroll forms. The Office Manager is regularly required to shop for office and family assistance supplies and arrange for repair of Dept. vehicles. The Office Manager is also required to accomplish daily administrative and clerical tasks that ensure the smooth operation of the Child Welfare Office and Healing Services Department.
