SOCIAL SERVICES CLIENTS REPORT
JULY 1, 2012 THROUGH DEC. 31, 2012
The primary function of Family Support Services is to assist residents of the Qualla Boundary with public and social welfare issues such as child custody, family problems and financial hardships. During the first six months of the Club’s fiscal year Family Support Services served 7,454 clients for an average of 1,242 per month. Services provided to clients included ICWA inquiries, open ICWA cases, parenting classes, medical travel vouchers, wood and fuel assistance, funeral assistance and the Christmas Store.
An average of 11 children per month were residents of the two cottages of the Cherokee Children’s Home. Approximately three-fourths of the children served were enrolled members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. The Child Care Department, consisting of Agelink, School Age and Snowbird Child Development Center, averaged a total of 89 children per month.
These statistics are compiled on a monthly basis and are provided by the department managers.
CBC PRINTING (GRAPHICS) DEPARTMENT
The Cherokee Boys Club Printing Department, established in 1984, continues to provide the community and surrounding areas with quality printing, copying and mailing services. The Cherokee Boys Club has provided the Printing Department with the most modern technology available to the printing industry in an effort to maintain quality printing and affordable pricing to customers. CBC Printing utilizes a two-color press that allows them to do all scoring, micro perforations, and die cutting in house. This has saved the company by not having to outsource any jobs that require these services.
The department also continues to offer vocational classes to the students of Cherokee High School. The printing department also takes part in summer youth employment offered by the Boys Club’s on-the-job training program.
