Urban Indian center gets help from Oneida Nation
The United Amerindian Center in Green Bay will restore services thanks to a $100,000 donation from the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin.

The center was forced to cut back on services after losing its Indian Health Service funds. The agency said the center failed to meet certain requirements.

The Oneida Nation donation will keep the center running until next March. The center is also starting a flower shop to raise funds.

The center provides health screenings, drug and alcohol counseling, help for elders, transportation for those in need and computers for those seeking a job.
