The Minnesota Indian Women's Resource Center (MIWRC) is a non-profit community organization located in the Phillips neighborhood of south Minneapolis. MIWRC's Mission is to empower American Indian women and families to exercise their cultural values and integrity, and to achieve sustainable life ways, while advocating for justice and equity. Our Vision is to be focused and collaborative leaders in building intergenerational hope, health, cultural prosperity, and education for American Indian families.
MIWRC currently offers 15 direct service and advocacy programs through five agency departments. All services are created in response to the voices of community elders and the women we serve, reviews of pertinent research and best practices, and a belief in innovative approaches based on cultural strengths. Our program models are designed to form an interconnected "circle of service" to address the complicated individual, family, community, and public policy issues that affect our urban American Indian client population.
