We try to provide service to as many people as we can while staying within the Indian Health Service and MHA Nation's transportation policy which states that the CHR program is allowed to transport clients/patients only when all of the client's/patient's transportation options have been exhausted. 

Our CHR personnel can only complete an emergency transport as a temporary solution while the necessary permanent arrangements are being made by the people in need. We apologize for any inconvenience and we sincerely appreciate your cooperation as we will continuously strive to be of the best possible service to your community.

CHR Goals and Objectives

Our entire staff here at the CHR office strive to provide the best possible services while staying within the guidelines as set forth by the Indian Health Service and Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation’s Tribal Business Council. It is our goal to serve the entire Ft. Berthold Indian Reservation with compassion and care. In serving our people it is of utmost importance that we stay within the grant parameters as established by the IHS. Our funding relies heavily on our ability to maintain our grant requirements. Our grant and the MHA Nation’s Tribal Business Council’s transportation guidelines in reference to our clients clearly states that we may only transport our clients after all other transportation resources have been exhausted. Our primary objectives are home visits to those in need of these services, our elders, and to serve our communities and their school systems with prevention, awareness, and intervention information by means of offering our services on a consistent basis at all gatherings and activities as well as our continued service to our current clientele. We will do our very best to serve you, should you need further information please feel free to contact our office at 701-627-4340 at your convenience.
