The CPN Department of Education and Workforce Development & Social Services have entered into a partnership with the Oklahoma Office of Educational Quality and Accountability to offer free teacher certification tests.
Citizen Potawatomi Nation Workforce & Social Services offers its Tribal Re-entry Program to former inmates. It is available to members of federally recognized tribes located within the program’s service area.
Enterprises, employees and several departments across the Tribe including FireLake Discount Foods and FireLodge Children and Family Services collect and supply food and gifts through other programs in addition to the Salvation Army every fall.
In 2020, the Tribe laid the groundwork for a growing staff and set of resources specifically devoted to the investigation of elder abuse and welfare. The CPN program is amongst the first of its kind for a tribe in the U.S.
As Citizen Potawatomi Nation continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the crises poses a threat to more than just the health of Tribal members and CPN employees. Tribes, and the states and regions benefiting from tribal development, must endure the threat to economic activity as well.
More than 600 guests attended the second annual Community Baby Shower hosted by Citizen Potawatomi Nation’s Workforce & Social Services Department and the CPN Child Development Center on Wednesday, March 4, 2020.
