What is Family Wellness at NAC?
It is hard enough caring for a child with significant medical needs, but all the more challenging when you are living in poverty and have limited resources. For many NAC families, this is their reality. That is why the food, clothing, housing advocacy, basic needs, and support NAC provides is invaluable.
Our Resources, Advocacy and Homeleness Prevention Program, Food Back, Clothing Bank, Toy Bank and other resources are available to all families enrolled in any of our main programs. Whether families need help finding accessible housing, assistance in applying for benefits, advocacy with housing court or landlord issues, or simply need help with groceries or other supplies at the end of the month, NAC is there for them.
