When I first moved to Southeast Michigan from my reservation, I was happy to discover that I could receive quality medical and join a Native American community in an urban area. The community events and programming help me to feel less alone and isolated. I only wish I lived closer so that my daughter could participate in the youth activities. I'm very grateful for AIHFS and all the staff who work to make the urban Native community stronger and healthier.

American Indian Health and Family Services of Southeastern Mi, Inc., is providing very important services for so many individuals who would have difficulty meeting all forms of social and health needs. Thank you.

Many of my students would not have had an opportunity to learn abou the needs and appropriate ways in which to care for this population were it not for AIHFS opening it's doors to them to experience by observing care in action.
