Programs & Services
Established over 20 years ago as a child welfare reform agency, the NHFA employs multiple approaches to reach its goal of improving children's developmental outcomes. NHFA helps families become financially self-reliant, promote their physical, emotional, social and spiritual well-being, and increase their capacity to guide and nurture their children. The process of coalition building and systems change to support healthy families is part of the agency's core mission. The NHFA holistic intervention model has proved highly effective in meeting the needs of very low income urban children by connecting parents to their children and reconstructing parents and families to their communities.
