The Hub is a new initiative to support economic stability and opportunity for American Indian families in the East Metro.
About the Hub
In a community-wide effort to create economic opportunity and systems change that will positively impact American Indians in the East Metro, the Department of Indian Work and Montessori American Indian Child Care Center are coming together to create an Economic Mobility Hub for American Indians in the East Metro.
The Hub facilitates and coordinates low-income American Indian families’ use of culturally-responsive resources and services that are proven to build and maintain family financial stability and mobility that flows through generations, including a focus on:
- Work, income, and health supports
- Career training and education
- Financial management and intergenerational wealth building
- Cultural connections and community supports
Approximately 3,200 of the 11,000 American Indians in Ramsey County are living in poverty. Four out of 10 American Indian households in the East Metro receive SNAP, a food supplement program for low-income families. Just 1 out of 10 American Indian families in the East Metro are homeowners, although research shows that homeownership is a key avenue to building wealth.
Do you want to improve your family’s financial situation?
Apply to be part of the Hub. Any American Indian family with a child under age 18 in their household who is eligible for Medical Assistance and who lives in Ramsey County is invited to apply. Download the recruitment flyer and apply below.
