Mission: Our mission is: Serving immediate needs. Supporting long-term solutions. Our vision is: Strong, self-sufficient Native American communities.
Results: Our impact is clearly documented in our annual report, effectiveness report, partner and participant stories, and news coverage in our press room at www.nrcprograms.org.
Target demographics: NRC serves remote and isolated reservation communities that are struggling economically but striving to be self-sufficient. To learn more about where we work and how, visit www.nrcprograms.org/site/PageNavigator/howwework.
Direct beneficiaries per year: NRC maintains partnerships with more than 1,000 reservation partners and, working together, we assist 250,000 Native Americans each year.
Geographic areas served: NRC serves 65 American Indian reservations across 11 states in the Northern Plains and Southwest
Programs: NRC's support is designed to fit the diverse needs of reservation communities. Over 70% of donations go toward programs. We focus primarily on: 1) Health & Wellness to counterbalance the necessity of crisis-focused healthcare by the Indian Health Service, and to support community-based initiatives for prevention, detection, wellness, education, and healthy life choices; 2) Food & Water to trim back the predominance of food insecurity and contaminated water, and to offset nutrition-related health risks by providing a variety of fresh, staple, and frozen foods and bottled water; 3) Scholarships & Education Services to create more opportunities for Native American students to complete high school and access college degrees or professional credentials; and 4) Emergency Services as first responders to environmental disasters, and to reduce risk related to winter, summer, housing, isolation, remoteness, lack of access, and lack of transportation. In addition, NRC provides Holiday support to alleviate stress on many Native famlies, and we provide Community support through animal welfare and other initiatives that bring elders and others out of isolation and working together. Our work is funded through our eight programs: AIEF, AIRC, CIN, SNRF, SWIRC, NAA, NRF and ROAR.
