NAYA Family Center 's mission is to "enhance the diverse strengths of our youth and families in partnership with the community through cultural identity and education."
Impacting the lives of more than 10,000 individuals each year, we at NAYA believe that traditional cultural values are integral to regaining sovereignty and building self-esteem. With the goal to provide stability for families and community members, moving them out of poverty and on to the path to prosperity, NAYA’s wraparound programs serve everyone from babies to elders. Offered free of charge to participants, our four programmatic areas include our alternative high school, the Many Nations Academy, Youth and Education Services, Family Services and Community Economic Development Services.
