Through a collaboration of community-based organizations,
NAZ provides a wraparound framework to stabilize low-income families of color with housing, employment and health resources. The end result is a community of children who are ready to start kindergarten and have a pathway to prepare them for college. This leads to better health for a lifetime for not only the children, but also the communities where they live, learn and eventually work.
Having an education can lead to a higher income, financial
stability and better overall health. Since 2014, the Foundation has awarded $200,000 for this
valuable work of building strong families in North Minneapolis to
propel young people toward success.
