Honoring the resiliency of Native American people,
AICHO’s vision is to strengthen our community by centering
indigenous values in all aspects of
AICHO’s operating philosophy is that every American Indian
woman and child deserves to live in a safe, non-threatening
environment and should be treated with dignity and respect.
The American Indian Community Housing Organization (AICHO)
is one of 27 nationwide facilities that focus on a
specific ethnic group. We provide housing services for
people suffering from long-term homelessness, transitional
housing for survivors of domestic abuse, and we run a 10-bed
shelter - the only Native American shelter
that provides services to battered women and their children
in the seven county area surrounding Duluth, Minnesota.
AICHO was featured a Minnesota Housing Partnership Agency
