What is NATHA?
NATHA stands for Neighbors Acting Together Helping All. We are a community association with a youth-centered perspective that promotes sled-efficiency; enhances individuals’ capacities to advocate for and maintain a healthy, safe, vibrant, and drub-free community. We first established in 1991 as the “Navarro Avenue Tremont Howard Association” (NATHA) neighborhood watch group, the name “NATHA” soon changed to “Neighbors Acting Together Helping All” to reflect our mission.
NATHA is a community association with a youth-centered perspective that promotes self-sufficiency and enhances individuals’ capacities to advocate for and maintain a healthy, safe and vibrant community.
Our collective impact approach is unique because it relies on our long-standing cross-sector coalitions with law enforcement, school, religious, local municipal, and business organizations to enhance relationships and to measure success along shared objectives. This, in turn, creates a seamless network of opportunities for youth. This network allows us to reach more youth, share resources for cost-effective service delivery, and address issues of poor social – economic, educational and public health outcomes.
