Public Health & Human Services for the
Cherokee Communities in
Western North Carolina
Welcome! We invite you to learn about the variety of programs within Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) Public Health & Human Services. Our programs are designed to improve individual – and community – quality of life.
Many of our services are only for enrolled members of the EBCI and other federally-recognized Indian tribes.
Some programs operate within the child care and school systems and are open to all children. Others, such as Tsali Care Nursing Facility, are open to anyone in need.
In addition to treatment programs, we are very invested in educating our community in prevention of unnecessary illness and disability. We make sure that individuals are aware of all the services available to them. Our programs work hand-in-hand with one another, ensuring continuity of care for individuals.
We are very interested in your well-being. Please call on us for assistance.
If you have a complaint or just a concern regarding regulations being followed by any Public Health and Human Services Employee or Program and are unsure if it should be reported, remember the following: When in doubt ...report it out. How to report
Pursuant to Cherokee Code (C.C.) section 150-5, the following Cherokee Administrative Rules are being published to inform the public of its adoption and implementation as an emergency rule in order to preserve the public health, safety and general welfare of the Tribe. View Administrative Rules
