Who we are          

         

Nabhi Christian Ministries (NCM), a nonprofit, 501 (C)3 organization, has been a leader in advocating safe-pathways for the healthy development of children in Allegheny County, since 1996.

The Mission of NCM Advocating safe-pathways for the healthy development of children victimized or exposed to drugs, violence, and other harsh environments in Allegheny County by dedicating to the enhancement of impoverished communities by reducing havoc and creating healthy environments through a provision of services that mentor, train and develop quality citizens of all ages.   


History:
  NCM
 is a nonprofit 501(C)3 organization founded in 1996 and incorporated in 1998. We have honored leaders who are committed to building and strengthening our community since 1997.

Our Work: In response to the rampant gang violence that endangered families and resulted in senseless deaths in the poorest neighborhoods of Allegheny County, NCM unified local leaders and formed an outreach, Concerned Citizens of Greater Pittsburgh (CCOGP).

In September 1996, with its first grant from Best Health Care, CCOGP mediated the most successful gang rally in the history of Pittsburgh (Rhododendron Pavilion Highland Park), resulting in a ceasefire and a public peace truce between five rival gangs.  CCOGP received local and national recognition.  

Shortly thereafter, CCOGP exp
a
nded its services to include the Educational Mentoring Program to assist schools, courts, and families to address academic failure because of negative risk factors. The program effectively reduced truancy.

In 2014, through the generous support of The Heinz Endowments, 4-H Pittsburgh teamed with The Kingsley Association and Nabhi Christian Ministries to deliver an innovative youth development program that gave African-American males leadership roles in their neighborhoods of Larimer and Lincoln-Lemington. 

We had a wonderful year in 2015. Our Toy Drive for Needy Children was very successful. We celebrated our Children’s Annual Christmas Reunion and Drug-Free Gingerbread House Contest on December 19 with our community partner, Faith Lutheran Church and our local sponsors. NCM Awards 2015 was held at the beautiful Rivers Club and was also a huge success!

We look forward to even a more exciting year in 2016. We are planning a series of community events including, Easter Egg Hunt 2016, Coats for Warmth, Back-to-School- NCM Awards 2016 and much more.  We welcome you to participate in these events and hope that you will join us in the important work.

We are very grateful to our partners and sponsors who are vital to the success of our organization by helping us to reach our goals through their support.
