Only two defining forces have ever offered to make the ultimate sacrifice. Jesus Christ and the American soldier, one died for our soul and the other protects our freedom.
Our mission is to help those that have fought for us, to support those in need of care and respite and to help provide care and comfort for their families. Through a network of supporters, mental health professionals, social services providers and veterans programming, we recognize the debt cannot be repaid but the burden can be lightened.
Family Support and Advocacy Program
America's military families face enormous uncertainty due to frequent moves, adjusting to a service member's war injuries, underemployment and unemployment and dealing with post traumatic stress. NCP provides support to help strengthen the family and repair damaged or broken bonds. NCP encourages families to reconnect, reengage and revitalize as they face life's challenges.
Children of military families may face fear and uncertainty around deployment and as the military parent transitions into civilian life. We support our youth to develop their voice, self respect and self esteem in order to apply positive decision-making skills as they adapt to change. Youth advocacy provides emotional support to young people struggling with education, family and developing a spiritual connection. NCP empower's the youth of Maywood in their everyday lives.
Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior's hands. How joyful is the man who's quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame, when he confronts his accusers at the city gates. Psalm 127:4 (NLT)
It still take a village to raise a child. Awareness of veterans and military families is essential to a healthy community. Connecting to families through local events and supporting our military and veterans families in need, brings everyone closer together as the community strives to make a way forward together.
