The Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake (UICSL) first opened its doors as the Indian Walk-In Center (IWIC) in 1974, with the Utah Council of Urban Indian Affairs (UCUIA) offering social, educational and physical services for American Indians residing in the Salt Lake City and Wasatch front area. Two years later (1976) IWIC mission was written, “To aid and assist Native American Indian people and to strengthen the family and community, respecting cultural values.” On January 1, 2012, an important shift took place, the name and mission of Indian Walk-In Center was changed to Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake (UICSL), to better reflect the emerging needs and trends of Native Americans circular migration into urban settings.
Our mission coupled with our vision statement reflects the current needs of Utah’s urban indian population. We are predominantly funded through Federal and State grants and contracts, private foundations and individual donor based giving. We devote resources to support and develop accessible, culturally competent healthcare programs and services for the whole family. Additionally, we provide comprehensive limited primary health care services, behavioral health care services, preventative/health screenings, and social services in a holistic responsive way.
Our center on average 5,587 patients in Clinical Health and Behavioral Health per year. Our target population includes areas where approximately 26.3% of community members live at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level, and where 25.7% of residents do not have health insurance.
