Health Care > CHR Program    
  MHA CHR Program      
  Currently our program has an employed staff of 17 which includes three office staff and nine Community Health Representative employees. Each segment has at least one CHR employee in their community with the exceptions of Parshall and Mandaree who have two and New Town having three. We have one CHR employee who serves as needed. In all areas with our clientele lists steadily increasing, these individuals are utilized in any event that we are over scheduled and in emergencies.  
  At the CHR offices, our priority is the health and well being o f our enrolled members. We understand that at times personal transportation to and from appointments can be a serious issue. 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 sercie to your community. For more information plealse feel free to contact our office at 701-627-4340.  
  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
