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.

Volunteer Vision:  

The American Indian Family Center (AIFC) strives to build a thriving community through volunteerism and experiential learning opportunities. We believe in the value and impact of the time and dedication of volunteerism and therefore aim to

  • Empower individuals to lead and advocate
  •  Provide opportunities to experience the richness of American Indian cultural traditions
  • Promote training, mentorship and opportunities to enhance individual skills and passions


The Medicine Wheel is a circular process of physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Used as the foundation of the organization and all AIFC programming the Medicine Wheel promotes balance, harmony and interconnectedness for all generations.
