community outreach

Tayas Yawks will provide peer support and job resources to all clients with added services around Native American

culture focusing on family values, culture and sense of community for tribal and community members. BestCare will

staff a Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor.

All services are based on a compassion approach, while providing harm reduction services and coordinated care with

BestCare for those willing to enter detox or treatment. Additionally, the project aims to create a continuum of care for this
