Worked with this nonprofit in several outreach endeavors. It provides programs and services to disadvantaged children enabling them to achieve academically, socially and spiritually. It offers fundamentals that empower and equip youth to become positive role models in their homes, schools and communities. It also offers programs for those who have struggled with addictions, and provides tools for living life free from drugs and alcohol. It cares about the total person spirit, soul and body.

Nabhi Christian Ministries is a beacon in the community. I have been able to attend many of the events from them giving away coats to assisting families through their grieving process through their counseling support. I have been able to volunteer as well as refer people to the ministry who have all expressed their appreciation for the organization. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing a parent who may be experiencing an unfortunate financial hardship and not know how they will buy gifts for their children be provided with bags of gifts. Thank you to all those who support Nabhi Christia Ministries through time, finances, and your prayers.

I have been a volunteer and recipient of the blessings that Nabhi provides to the families in the Lincoln/Larimer communities and beyond. The coat drives and Easter Egg Hunt have brought the community together. When there is so much violence around it is good to see an organization like Nabhi bringing a little sunshine and hope. I thank you for all you do and how much you have helped me and students from my school by providing backpacks and other school supplies. I love that this organization thinks about the entire family.

NCM is a non profit organization that truly contributes their time and dedication in assisting the community in such a positive manner. I admire how they show children the exploration of nature and animals with Zoo trips to broadening artistically with trips to local shows. They also welcome folks to partake or volunteer in their community events as well. Ms. Jacque is the beacon of light behind this devoted organization and with her amazing team, they will continue to bring good balance to the community. All Praises to the Most

Naby Christian ministry helps their neighborhood and the people that’s in the church really help people that need help

In a neighborhood often overlooked by Pittsburgh's government and large, established nonprofits, Nabhi Christian Ministries reaches out to people who need assistance when and where it matters, providing food, clothing, Christmas toys and other help to families. When Pastor Jacque learns of an individual case of need, she puts out the word for donations to help with someone's utility costs or the like, and raises the resources. When a person needs counseling or even just an ear, she offers support. This is a church that truly defines the meaning of "a service of thanksgiving." Volunteers will find joy associating with this ministry.

Volunteering at Nabhi Christian Ministries is always a wonderful experience. Their special events add significant contributions in providing quality experiences for at-risk youth of all ages. I am looking forward to volunteering at their annual Children's Christmas Reunion once again. There were about 400 or more needy children last year at the event. Their faces lit up as they received their gift bags filled with cheer. This is really a wonderful organization that quietly serves hundreds of children, families and communities in need.
