Program areas at NRC

HEALTH: PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM: To support preventative care and health education initiatives by reservation programs serving tribal members, and to help them motivate healthy involvement in community service. SITUATION: The people NRC serves on remote and isolated reservations rely on limited Indian Health Services (IHS) for medical care. Transportation is a major problem because of the long distances to clinics and the lack of transportation. Severely underfunded and understaffed for the size and location of the populations it serves, IHS focuses on healthcare crises rather than preventive care. Due to higher infant mortality, lower life expectancy, diabetes at epidemic levels, tuberculosis seven times higher for Native Americans, and cancer-related disparities higher than for any minority group in the U.S., NRC supports reservation programs that address preventative and long-term healthcare needs. In addition, a long history of oppression has contributed to the limited view of opportunities many Native Americans envision ...

HOLIDAY: PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM: To help our reservation partners spread community cheer and participation at times when many families are experiencing more stress and disenfranchisement. SITUATION: Native American Elders and children on the reservations assisted by NRC are certainly aware of holidays celebrated across the U.S., but frequently their families cannot afford special holiday gifts or extras. Up to 43% of Native American children live in poverty, many of them raised by grandparents on severely limited, fixed incomes. Poverty rates on the 60 reservations served by NRC range from 38% to 63%. NRC RESPONSE: During the 2014 holidays, 50,225 children, teens and Elders received holiday gift stockings filled with practical items to meet immediate needs, and 14,916 children and families received incentives and prizes when they came together to participate in spring, Easter and other community gatherings. These types of holiday events also help partners and local volunteers develop ...

FOOD & WATER: PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM: To ease food insecurity among Native American Elders, children and families on the reservations we serve. SITUATION: Nearly one in four (23%) Native American households experience low food security, meaning not enough food quality, variety, or desirability of dietary intake. Because low food security is an everyday issue on the reservations NRC serves, nutrition-related disease rates are high. Contaminated drinking water is also an issue in many of the communities served by NRC. Although many food banks operate within NRC's service area, a study by America's Second Harvest shows that the majority of food banks lack an adequate supply of food to meet demand. NRC RESPONSE: NRC helped meet immediate needs by increasing our overall food support again in 2014. Our food boxes helped food pantries feed 66,376 people. NRC supplied staple foods for Elderly Nutrition Programs and soup kitchens, feeding an additional ...
