Native American Connections
Since 1972, Native American Connections (NAC) has grown from a grassroots organization operating a safe haven for Native Americans recovering from substance abuse into one which now owns/operates 15 sites throughout Central Phoenix offering a continuum of housing and behavioral health services to both urban and tribal populations. NAC is committed to its mission of providing Native American culturally centered opportunities in housing, health, and development.
NAC’s main programs/services include: Cultural and Traditional Healing Services, Behavioral Health/Substance Abuse Treatment, Affordable Housing, Community Economic Development, Property Management, Resident/Support Services, and Training & Education. NAC provides comprehensive behavioral health services to approximately 1,500 individuals and families annually. Native Americans comprise 70% of all admissions, and represent one of the fastest growing minority populations in the Greater Phoenix area. In addition, NAC’s Training Division offers over 100 training sessions annually serving more than 1,200 individuals. Finally, NAC provides supportive services to individuals/families in over 250 owner/operated units of single family homes and multi-family affordable housing.
