Cook Inlet Tribal Council (CITC) is a tribal nonprofit organization serving Alaska Native and American Indian people residing in the Cook Inlet region of southcentral Alaska and assisting them in reaching their often untapped potential.
We believe that when we work together, we can help each other develop our strengths and talents, and become successful and self-sufficient individuals, families, and communities.
Since its inception in 1983, CITC has grown from a fledgling, grass-roots operation with only three employees to one of the nation’s preeminent culturally responsive social-service organizations serving over 12,000 people annually and employing more than 400 passionate and caring individuals.
An array of support services includes education, employment and training services, workforce development, family preservation, and support for individuals recovering from addiction, substance abuse, or incarceration.
Through our subsidiaries The Alaska Native Justice Center and the Clare Swan Early Learning Center, we are able address Alaska Native people’s unmet needs within the Alaska civil and criminal justice system and provide for the needs of working families with child care through an Early Head Start curriculum.
