Urban American Indian Center established to assist and support American Indian and Alaskan Native families with moving into an urban environment and adjusting to the culture change they will experience. The BAIC also serves as a focal point for the Indian community for social and cultural activities and to educate non-native people about the cultures of the North American Indian and Alaskan Native communities.
The Baltimore American Indian Center (BAIC) is a 501�3 non-profit organization that has been servicing the Native American Indians in the Baltimore and surrounding areas since 1968. The BAIC was established to serve as a social and cultural outlet for the Native American Indians. The Native American Indians started to move into the Baltimore area around the 1940s in hopes of finding better jobs to support themselves and their families. The leaders of the community designed and executed a plan of advocacy for Native American Indians. The BAIC has been able to help the Native American Indians find jobs and housing and with financial assistance. Throughout the years the BAIC has ran many different types of programs. Some of those programs were alcohol and drug abuse programs, adult basic education programs(GED), HIV-AIDS programs, tutoring services, job and training placement programs. In addition to those types of services, the BAIC wanted to help keep the Native American Indian culture and traditions alive.
