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 customer base consists of five diverse groups:

  1. Manufacturing companies, like Boeing, who purchase assembled goods
  2. Organizations who pay us to maintain their grounds
  3. Government agencies who pay us to provide support services
  4. Eligible job seekers who we assist in finding and maintaining employment
  5. Employers who hire people we assist

Our revenue is used to self-fund our mission.

Chinook recently wrapped up a 2021 Strategic Planning Session generating a goals under the theme of: Expanding Programs, Populations and Partnerships.

The process was vigorous, from collecting surveys on feedback, to conducting listening sessions with stakeholders and reviewing results with staff, managers and our Board of Directors. Finally, the visual of our “2021 Voyage: Rafting the river-Envisioning the Future” was born.

Many thanks to Tim Colibri of Colibri Facilitation and Skagit County for making this possible. Chinookians set ambitious goals to journey forward, despite the rocky terrain that COVID has meant.

Given our mission-driven staff, stellar community support and epic customers, we are excited to expand our reach and influence in our community!

I appreciate the work you do…it definitely gives one a greater understanding of how a job can make a difference in life—especially when it’s not easy to do.  It opened my eyes to the barriers some people face and how an advocate can really make a difference.
