I was on the board back when this organization first started. The founder has shown an unwavering mission to help those that have suffered from domestic violence. There mission is large with offering training resources, and help for those that have been victims of both domestic violence and substance use disorder. One of the unique things about NATN is the coffee shop. This offers the women in the program a job training opportunity while providing a great place to get coffee and spend time with friends in the events. Their homes are well kept, they offer multiple services and reach out to the community to offer so many resources to the women to help them get back on there feet and develop a life in which they thrive and are happy. The hours of dedication from the founder, staff and volunteers is mind blowing. This is an agency that give, gives, and gives to help the victims of domestic violence and train law enforcement and other agencies how best to work with this population.
