Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The California Consortium for Urban Indian Health (CCUIH) supports health promotion and access for American Indians living in cities throughout California. CCUIH's mission is to facilitate shared development resources for our members and to raise public awareness in order to support a health and wellness network that meets the needs of American Indians living in urban communities in California.
CCUIH is a statewide alliance of urban Indian health organizations, substance abuse treatment facilities, and social service agencies, collectively referred to as UIHOs. CCUIH provides centralized management of community health organizing, training and technical assistance, public education, and policy advocacy for UIHOs in California. Our activities aim to: 1) leverage the work of our members in order to increase the capacity of the urban Indian health care network, and 2) maximize public awareness and address policy inequities in order to create greater access to health services for American Indians in urban areas. By blending the leadership and experience of our consortium members with shared resource development, and by combining applied research with educational and policy advocacy efforts- CCUIH's activities focus on innovative solutions to the health and wellness needs of the urban Indian community.
