Cherokee Nation Human Services provides several assistance programs to qualifying families. These programs include assistance with housing, food and nutrition, child care and development, child support and elder assistance. Many of these programs are for emergency, short-term needs that may not be covered in other Cherokee Nation programs. The programs provided by Human Services focus on stabilization of families and promote self-sufficiency.
