Our Mission & Vision
The NIA Foundation, Inc. was founded on our namesake’s principle of ‘purpose’ and we have embedded that in the services we provide, the people we entrust to carry out our mission, and the communities we assist. We prioritize support for special education services with direct pupil and family services in culturally competent, racially sensitive, and LGBTQ+ friendly ways. Inclusion is part of our DNA and fabric and our staff reflects this. The NIA Foundation, Inc. hires and trains service providers who are committed not only to academic excellence but the overall wellbeing of students and families. Furthermore, we hold the charter schools, public and non-public schools, districts, and counties we partner with to these same standards.
