Nollie Jenkins Family Center, Inc.

Durant, MS

NJFC visualizes an energized and involved community where all people, young and old, are valued, nurtured and supported as we work together to build and sustain communities that are purposeful in ensuring that the environmental, political, cultural, recreational, educational, economic, and spiritual needs of its citizens are actualized and preserved.

NJFC's mission is to empower the African American citizens of the community by developing and supporting grassroots leaders, community organizers, parents, students, as well as community-based organizations so that they have the necessary tools/skills of community organizing, advocacy, and activism to increase family engagement, build for meaningful social change, effectively impact local and state policy, family and governance structures; and build stronger/sustainable organizations and communities.
