American Indian Family
and Children's  Services



AIFACS is an organization that places American Indian foster children in culturally specific foster homes.  Since 1985 we have recruited, licensed, trained, supervised and supported American Indian foster homes within the whole state of Minnesota.

** VOICE **
AIFACS believes in the right of American Indian Children to grow up among their own people.  We have a responsibility as a nation to take care of our children.  As an organization and community supporter, we strive to find temporary homes for Indian children.

** SPIRIT **
The very essence of AIFACS lies in our preservation of heritage, community and spirit.  We are members of:
  • The National Indian Child Welfare Association
  • The Minnesota Foster Care Association
  • The National Foster Care Association
  • Minnesota Youth Intervention Programs Association (YIPA)
  • Minnesota Council of Non-Profit


AIFACS is more than a foster care organization.  You will be guided through the foster care process with knowledgable staff who are there to help you.  AIFACS is a family, when you become part of that family you will always have someone looking out for everyone's best interests.
