We are a Social Enterprise

We are a non-profit designed to operate as a business, but with a social mission: supporting full participation in community life for people with disabilities or other barriers. Full participation must start with successful employment.

Chinook’s diverse customer base consists of five customer groups. Our revenue is used to self-fund our mission.

  • We manufacture and assemble goods in our award-winning production division.
  • Local businesses contract with us to maintain their grounds and landscaping.
  • Government agencies partner with us to provide support services to qualified job seekers.
  • We assist Job Seekers in finding great employers.
  • Employers utilize our services to find great employees.

Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace

We’ve helped place over 1,153 people in jobs since we opened our doors in 1980

Our goal: To help people live more productive and fulfilling lives by striving to gain competitive employment as well as inclusion in the community. 

Our action: We demonstrate a positive environment to work, train, and provide service to our customers regardless of culture, age, gender, abilities, gender identity or expression, national origin, sexual orientation, spiritual beliefs, genetic information, socioeconomic status, and language of origin.  We prioritize diversity education for our staff and stakeholders and regularly assess our employee, customer, and stakeholder demographics to improve our effectiveness.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Chinook Enterprises strictly prohibits unlawful discrimiation. Employees or Service Recipients who believe they have experienced discrimination should seek assistance from Chinook’s Human Resources Manager and may do so without reprisal. 

Community Partners

We could not continue our great work without great partners.

It takes cooperation from a caring community, businesses, and government to secure jobs that are needed for individuals living with significant disabilities. We thank our Community Partners for their role in helping to achieve this goal.
