NMC Wellness Center is a safe place to begin the healing our villages and communities need. NMC provides a non-judgmental environment for Native American Families to develop the life and coping skills needed to have a healthy life we all deserve.
We focus on helping Native Americans discover self-identity by preserving their culture. We focus on community building, education, and using traditional and contemporary musical arts as a healthy coping skill.
In 2016, a collective group of artists recognized the negative impact drugs and alcohol have on the youth in indigenous communities. This is when the work began. In 2018, Native Music Coalition received non-profit status and began sponsoring events and workshops with the simple goal of restoring hope among the Native American Communities of Southern Arizona.
90% of NMC's core staff are Peer Support Specialist. We do our best to hire a team that will take professional accountability for the healing and support of Native American Youth, Families and Communities.
The goal of our Native American Workshops is to connect culture with an urban lifestyle
NMC has served over 700 native youth in the past two years by spearheading annual Backpack give away events in which food, entertainment, free raffles, and school supplies were provided.
Building a bond with family may be challenging for some. NMC provides families with tools needed to build healthier relationships in the home through our wellness painting workshops. Follow us to attend our next workshop!
NMC's music workshops help native youth restore their indigenous identity. Tribal youth learn the history and the many uses of the gourd in the South Western states. Preserving the culture of the South West is imperative for the future generations to come. Join us for our next workshop!
