The Band Social Development Worker (BDSW) works to provide social assistance and social
development for the Upper Similkameen Indian Band (USIB) to all on-reserve members or non-members
that are legally residing on USIB land. The BDSW delivers the Family Violence Program, Adult in
Home Care, and National Child Benefit Programs to the community, and will refer families and
individuals to support services as required. This is a non-judgemental position and one that focuses on
providing support to individuals who have fallen on hard times, while also assisting in making the
transition back to work a positive experience.
The BDSW partners with the Pre-Employment Program Case Worker and in collaboration assists clients to
get paid training to remove obstacles that may interfere with obtaining sustainable work. Should you want further information about any of the above-mentioned programs please email or call the USIB Administration office at 250-292-8733. Alternatively, you can contact (PEP) or (OTDC).
