To strengthen vulnerable American Indian children and families through collaborative and culturally responsive services.
Who We Are
Denver Indian Family Resource Center was created to assist American Indian children and families in the metropolitan Denver area with child welfare issues. Our goal is to assist families to avoid involvement with the child welfare system. Where families have already encountered child abuse or neglect charges, we advocate for active efforts toward family reunification following the standards of the Indian Child Welfare Act. We provide culturally appropriate services and intensive case management using a strengths-based and empowerment-oriented approach.
Our definition of family includes relatives and close friends in order to recognize the reality for most Indian families. DIFRC will work closely with our families and other agencies to promote responsible healing by restoring balance, nurturing pride and acknowledging the importance of the extended family and community.
