Who We Are

The Nia Project’s mission is to empower abused, suicidal African American women to access behavioral health services, find a new sense of purpose, lead more meaningful lives, and affirm their commitment to living a violence-free life.

“Nia” is a principle of Kwanzaa, meaning “Purpose.”
