mission statement

Dawaa I yaani naitra gunishi - wishing a good life path


Our mission is to improve the quality of life of our Pueblo by offering the highest level of care. We recognize that every individual has a unique situation for which we provide exceptional care and services as individualized as they are. We believe that the best care is obtained through the relationship and collaboration of individuals and staff. 

POAHHSD consists of five tribal programs, Behavioral Health Services, Health and Wellness Department, Social Services, Senior Center, and the Food Distribution Program under the direction of the Executive Director. 



Trust, honesty, communication, and mutual support allows us to work together to serve our Pueblo.


Healing and wellness start with access. Staff availability is our priority.


We hold ourselves responsible and assume ownership of the solutions we provide. We will do what is right for those we serve and our Pueblo.


We treat all individuals and our Pueblo with respect and dignity. We strive to provide a thoughtful and caring experience.
