Free Help for Urban Natives From ABQ Program
Native Americans throughout the U.S. have moved into urban areas looking for better opportunities. Higher education and employment are usually cited as the two main motives for Native people to move to the cities. But often times their hopes and aspirations do not materialize, leaving them desperate for help.
The National Indian Youth Council is headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The organization works with low-income Native people, many of whom are jobless or homeless – or both. NIYC also has field offices in Gallup and Farmington, New Mexico.
