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.


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.
