Since 1978, American Indian Health & Family Services (AIHFS) has been a nonprofit health and community wellness center. The center’s approach integrates traditional Native American healing and spiritual practices with contemporary Western medicine in both treatment and prevention through the use of the Integrated Care Model.
AIHFS is a Title V Urban Indian Health Organization and a Federally Qualified Health Center that has obtained CARF accreditation as a certified “Health Home.” A health home is a healthcare delivery approach that focuses on the whole person and integrates and coordinates primary care, behavioral health, other healthcare, and community and social support services. AIHFS is supported by funding from the Indian Health Service, federal grants, and contributions from partners and community members. AIHFS is located in southwest Detroit and serves a seven-county area.
