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, Guardianship Services, and Lewis County Head Start.

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

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.
