Our Mission and Vision
The mission of Denver Indian Health and Family Services is to provide culturally competent services that promote quality health for American Indian and Alaskan Native adults, children, and families in the Denver metropolitan area.
DIHFS was founded in 1978 as the result of a needs assessment that called for the co-location of medical services for the Indian community at one site; the provision of health education in addition to primary services; and, the delivery of services in a manner that was comfortable to Indian patients.
