Who We Serve
“We can make a difference. People in wheelchairs can make a difference. We can do anything that we can set our hearts and minds to. We can do anything. Accomplish anything. Be anything. And I wouldn't want our disabilities to stop us from being who we want to be.”
– those who are living in poverty, have a profound disability, chronic illness or mental health diagnoses, and have experienced or are at risk of experiencing abuse and/or neglect.
NAC families face enormous challenges — intergenerational poverty, traumatic histories, mental illness, domestic violence and homelessness — while trying to
care for a child, or many children, with serious medical and/or mental health needs. NAC confronts the great challenges that our families face with comprehensive support and services, providing families with hope and stability and children with
an alternative to a life of institutionalization and public dependence.
