PWNA is a quality organization who provided support of our community garden project in San Carlos, Arizona for the Apache people. We are a new non-profit organization called Nalwoodi Denzhone community (NDC). PWNA recognized our vision of revitalization of the San Carlos Apache people and land, and they jumped right in to support our efforts. Our garden is now providing both education and fresh, healthy produce for many Apaches! We had a great experience working with Shane Burnette and look forward to further partnerships! Thanks PWNA!
My name is Paula Beasley, I am from the Navajo Nation in Sanders AZ. My dad started helping different ministries on the rez in 1996. I started helping him with the distribution and basically took over for him in 2009, when he got sick. We started with PWNA around that time, and they have been a tremendous help for our 11 ministries that we assist with. We have 3 ministries in Gallup, NM that help with the homeless and help with feeding them and clothing them, and we have 8 that help out various places on the rez. PWNA has been a huge asset with these ministries continuing. We have been very blessed to have PWNA as a part of out community. We are thankful for all that PWNA has done.
We work with this organization to help in many areas, with a concentration in education. However, Partnership with Native Americans has gone above and beyond in working with us, giving us information, and having relevant services for those we serve. Their staff are helpful, engaging, and flexible. They have made the time to visit with us to see how they can improve and to meet with the folks who utilize their services. I have nothing but positives things to say about these guys!! You can tell these folks really care and work from the heart!!!
Partnerships With Native Americans is undeniably a GREAT Nonprofit! GREAT, in my opinion, is measured by the impact this organization has had on youth representing various tribal communities. Scholarships and community event support has had a direct and positive impact on Native students pursuing higher education at Arizona State University. Thank you!!
This is a great team. I was glad to be a part of their first leadership cohort, and I have since nominated several other folks to the program.
They have also helped our community with a variety of resources including training, materials, and support.
PWNA has been a wonderful community partner! They support a variety of programs at the Sunrise House Family Resource Center! We are located in a remote location in Southern Arizona on the Tohono O'odham Nation however we are able to offer cooking classes, parenting classes and offer distribution days where we can provide community members with hygiene items, food items and support because of PWNA.
The staff is amazing and helpful, the systems they have in place are efficient and help us provide vital services to families in need. A simple thank you doesn't seem sufficient but we are very thankful for the amazing organization!
This nonprofit experience was a lifesaver for me. I am the daughter of a single mother. Financial aid was not enough for me to be able to attend college so Partnership with Native Americans made it possible for me to fulfill my lifelong dream.....to be able to go to college and obtain a degree in social work. Without the help of this nonprofit organization, my mother would not been able to do it on her own. The organization made sure I had everything I needed to make my first year in college a successful one. I am forever grateful for all that the Partnership for Native Americans has done for me.
I would like to share my wonderful experience with T3 Program with PWNA. This opportunity increased my knowledge in Native Foods and culinary skills to allow me to cook healthier for my family. Both the Chefs Lois and Walter were amazing and they were very helpful on understanding the use of fresh garden grown ingredients and healthy living and also the best use of specific vegetables for cooking would be better for my family. This training gave me a kick start on healthy lifestyle choices and self-improvement. Thank you PWNA
I participated in the PWNA 4 Directions Development Program, which helped me improve my leadership skills personally and professionally. My place of employment also uses PWNA to assist our families with many different items that help to make their lives a little easier.
PWNA has been an essential part of our transition programs at our university. We offer a transition program to new incoming students. Due the to the help we received from PWNA we were able to help American Indian students successfully transition into college by removing some tough financial barriers. We were also able to familiarize these students with the resources they have available to them on campus. The options they have for assisting students go beyond the traditional funding, but could also include items to help students living on campus. In the past, PWNA has also helped with emergency funding opportunities which is always needed. The PWNA are knowledgeable and friendly to work with! We look forward to continuing our partnership with PWNA.
