To enhance the diverse strengths of our youth and families in partnership with the community through cultural identity and education.
Bottom Line for Portland
This past year, NAYA programs impacted 10,000 people in the Portland region, including 944 youth participating in culturally-specific programs, college and career services and homeless youth supports. Thirteen students graduated with diplomas from NAYA’s alternative high school, our Early College Academy. 802 families received housing and energy assistance, and more than 40 families received critical home repair so they could remain in their homes.
“Being a part of this greater community has been so helpful. NAYA is my second family and my second home. I can’t even imagine where I would be if I wasn’t at NAYA. NAYA is my rainbow after the rain.”
—NAYA youth Paulina Gutierrez, Iñupiaq
