History of NACA Inc.

Since 1971, Native Americans for Community Action Inc has been offering a variety of health and human services to urban Native Americans, low-income, and other in-need families, as well as those individuals and families that are impacted by health and socio-economic disparities at rates disproportionate to the general population. Approximately 7,000 individuals and their families are served, each year.

 

NACA has provided 45 years of services to the Native American peoples of Coconino County, both on and off reservation (depending on the mandate of each program). Its core program is the Family Health Center, which has provided low-fee services to both Native and non-Native residents of Northern Arizona since 1991. Additional health-related programs include: Tobacco Education Program, Diabetes Prevention Program, and the Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Program.

 

What is most interesting about the agency is the range of holistic services it has provided over the years, including an economic development program, a general education program, a program to assist Navajo people to relocate off of contested land, and criminal justice service programs such as youth crime prevention programs, mental health counseling, and substance abuse counseling. This is in keeping with the holistic values of Native American cultures and fills serious gaps in local services.

 

The agency also provides other services to the Native and non-Native populations through capacity building by training future political and community leaders, fighting stereotypes of Native American individuals and organizations, and acting as a knowledge base regarding Native issues to governments and non-Native organizations.
