Where American Indian Families Thrive!
The AIFC values and adheres to the Charities Review Council’s Accountability Standards
AIFC provides American Indian Families with programs and services enriched by traditional American Indian Values and culture.
The AIFC encourages families to participate in our activities and services and in doing so can become a member of our Family Center.
The American Indian Family Center provides culturally specific, holistic services for clients and their families. Our programming is defined by the philosophy of the medicine wheel, which teaches that the four parts of each human being -- physical, spiritual, emotional, and intellectual-- are equally important. Additionally, AIFC works closely with partner agencies and community resources in order to provide the best resources possible for clients.
The American Indian Family Center was initially started in 1994 under the umbrella of the Ramsey County Children's Initiative. In 1995, a location was identified and the doors opened to families for services in 1997. Articles of Incorporation and temporary federal status as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization was achieved in 1997 with permanent status in 2001. The AIFC is now a recipient of multiple grants through private and public sources.
