About Our Organization
The Baltimore American Indian Center (BAIC) is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1968 with a mission to “assist and support American Indian and Alaskan Native families moving into an urban environment and adjusting to the culture change they will experience”. Following WWII, the neighborhood surrounding BAIC became populated predominantly by American Indians and was referred to as “the Reservation”. While BAIC was founded by Lumbee Tribal Members, the Center is open to Native community members from all tribes and nations. To support the Native American community, BAIC provided services that included education, skills trainings, workforce development, child care, afterschool arts, and seniors programs, as well as health and healing services.
