Hoh-ke-pek’ Program



The Hoh-ke-pek’ Program is a part of the Youth Opioid Victim’s Assistance (YOVA) Project, which is a collaborative effort between the Yurok Tribal Court and Yurok Health & Human Services Department to serve the needs of Yurok youth and families impacted by the Opioid Crisis. Our team specializes in providing Yurok traditional culture-centered, direct mentoring services and connection to supportive services for our participating families.
