Generations of healthy, strong American Indian and Alaska Native children and families

Who We Are

Denver Indian Family Resource Center (DIFRC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in the Denver metro area. Our agency was founded in 2000 to respond to the overrepresentation of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) families involved in the child welfare system, a historic and ongoing challenge within the AI/AN population. Culturally-responsive services were identified as a critical unmet need. By way of initiatory partnership with Casey Family Programs, DIFRC was founded to meet this need through direct services and systems change efforts.


DIFRC’s mission is to strengthen vulnerable AI/AN children and families through collaborative and culturally-responsive services. DIFRC achieves this by providing family services and community programs to families who self-identify as AI/AN in the Denver metro area. Additionally, DIFRC provides Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) advocacy to support reunification efforts for families who are involved in the child welfare system. Our definition of family includes relatives and close friends in order to recognize the reality for most Indian families. DIFRC has established a revered reputation and demonstrated success in serving as a single point of entry for comprehensive, intensive, and collaborative community-based services to vulnerable AI/AN children and their caregivers.
