ABOUT NARRA

Building  Stronger Families 
Building Stronger Communities

NARRA was established as a non-profit organization on March 16, 2016. NARRA is dedicated to fostering the unity and strengthening of family relationships. At NARRA, we believe that healthy families lead to a better society. We strive to support society by providing services that cultivate and empower family unity and strengthening family ties through strategies that address the challenges and difficulties experienced by families.
