Reliable Enterprises helps unify clients and the community.

In many cases this means developing new job opportunities with Lewis County businesses that enhance the quality of the lives of clients, customers, and community.

Founded in 1977, Reliable Enterprises of Lewis County, Washington began by offering basic socialization skills for people coming out of institutions.

Through the years the nonprofit organization has continually adapted and improved its programs to meet growing community needs.

We Make a Positive Difference in our Community.

Considering itself a community service organization rather than an agency that promotes individual programs, Reliable Enterprises believes that everything starts with the individual.

Each person’s maximum potential in the areas of vocational and personal development is considered. Those trained are then placed in competitive employment or group-supported employment.

Today Reliable Enterprises offers Housing Services, New Life Home Supply, SPARC, the Family Support Network, the Infant Toddler Early Intervention Program (InToT), the Parent to Parent program, and Lewis County Head Start.

Additionally, we offer a Payee Program, Individual Supported Employment. Child Health Notes, Adult Disabilities Training-Group Supported Employment. Recreation. We co-sponsor programs with Centralia College and many agencies throughout the Pacific Northwest.

We are excited to announce that Reliable Enterprises/In-Tot Programs have partnered with Rite Aid as an official KidCents Charity! This means more sustainable funding for Reliable Enterprises, In-Tot, and many of the programs supported by Reliable Enterprises!  All funds stay right here in OUR local Lewis County Community!  Click the this link for instructions on how you can help.

It also means that YOU have the ability to help us reach our goals by simply shopping at Rite Aid and rounding up your purchases for our organization, as well as asking your friends and family to participate in the program. Imagine the change that your change can make!

Reliable Administrative Office hours are 8:00AM-5:00PM Monday through Friday.  Here is a link to our schedule of holidays that we will be closed for the year.
