ONWT is a resource & referral agency providing a manifold of Native-specific, culturally appropriate programs, services, & crisis interventions for American Indian & Alaska Natives, who disproportionately experience greater levels of poverty, health issues, hunger, homelessness & unemployment than any other US demographic. We help transition individuals & families out of crisis & into healthy, sustainable situations.
One by one we can make a difference in our community. Building on years of experience working with various Nations and Tribes ONWT provides highly responsive, reliable & culturally appropriate help for indigenous people in our area. Ninety cents of every dollar donated aids Native Americans-the most underserved group in our country. In addition, educational programming provides native to nonnative cultural exchange.

Urban American Indians & Alaska Natives are more likely to be homeless that non-Natives. In addition, their home ownership rates are 15 percent lower.
“I'm so thankful for ONWT, they helped me get through hard times and find the resources to get what I needed. All the people there have always been so kind and understanding. They are an organization making a difference.” — Nina, a young Native American seeking services at ONWT
