About Us

Reliable Enterprises is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to better the lives of disadvantaged people in Lewis County, Washington.

Our Story

Reliable Enterprises began in a garage in 1977, launched by a group of local citizens who were concerned about the welfare of disabled adults. Over the decades, the program expanded beautifully to meet the needs of its citizens: children, their parents, veterans, homeless, mentally ill, and impoverished. Now, 43 years after its humble beginning, Reliable Enterprises operates twelve programs, two emergent foster homes, and eight low-income housing properties, easily serving thousands of families and disadvantaged citizens in Lewis County.
