OUR 30 YEAR IMPACT
NATHA began as a neighborhood watch group in 1991 reacting to the problem of criminal activities that plagued its community. The neighborhood saw the need to involve children, youth, and their families in turning these problems around.
Our organization’s collective impact approach relies on our long-standing cross-sector coalitions with law enforcement agencies, schools, religious establishments, local municipalities, and business organizations. Through this approach, we can enhance relationships and measure success along with shared objectives.
Our approach also creates a seamless network of opportunities for the youth. This network, in turn, allows us to reach more youth and share resources for cost-effective service delivery. Lastly, it helps in addressing a variety of issues, such as poor socioeconomic, educational, and public health outcomes.
