We’ve Changed Our Name!! We have always been proud of our partnership with Native Americans, and now we further proclaim it by announcing our new organizational name: Partnership With Native Americans (PWNA).
Formerly known as National Relief Charities (NRC), our new name better communicates our mission and honors our relationships with tribal communities, as well as those who aid our work. Our new name will help us strengthen resources for serving Native communities with the highest need in the U.S.
Please update your bookmarks to reflect the new website's URL: www.nativepartnership.org. The old NRC website will no longer be updated.
National Relief Charities (NRC) is a nonprofit dedicated to quality of life for Native Americans living on remote and poverty-stricken reservations in the Northern Plains and Southwest regions of the United States. Native Americans are the most underserved group in America.
We serve tribal and other programs that are located and operated on the reservations we serve. These are our Program Partners. They are in the best position to know the people and the needs in their communities.
How We Help Partners Improve Quality of Life: We provide opportunities year-round that help more than 1,000 reservation Program Partners meet immediate needs and develop long-term solutions that better serve their communities.
Working together, NRC and our Program Partners are improving quality of life for about one quarter of a million Native Americans each year.
NRC's approach to working in Indian country is time-tested. We also bring cultural competency to the field. Every member of our program team has experience working on the reservations.
