Company Information
The first American Indian school in St. Paul over twenty-seven years ago recognized that many of its students were homeless or in homes that were affecting their ability to attend school and succeed. Children and youth were often focused on survival and meeting basic needs. The majority of homeless children and youth were and continue to be American Indian. Out of these realities and the hard work of many early American Indian leaders and the generosity of funding partners, the Ain Dah Yung Center was born in 1983. The Ain Dah Yung Center led the way as the first agency to provide any form of culturally relevant focused services to any group. The Ain Dah Yung Center’s Emergency Shelter and empowering culturally relevant programs immediately proved to be much more utilized and effective than mainstream services for American Indian families. The Emergency Shelter established its own 501c3 non-profit status in 1991.

The Emergency Shelter provides culturally specific emergency shelter to American Indian youth (although welcomes all youth) who are homeless, runaway, in a family crisis, or involved with juvenile corrections. Services include: emergency and short-term shelter, crisis intervention, case and systems advocacy, information and referrals, access to medical/dental care, counseling, case management and community education.
