"We empower people to make changes in their lives and become more self-sufficient and self-reliant"

By giving to NILP you're making an investment in your community

It’s a person with a disability who needs personal care assistance from home. It’s a young person who needs a mentor and skills training. It’s an older adult who needs companionship. It’s a family that’s struggling to afford basic necessities, and so much more. Every donation made goes towards helping someone who needs support.
