Learn more about our organization and our namesake, Michael Nathan Rudolph (Nate). He inspired us and so many others.
MISSION & HISTORY.
Michael Nathan Rudolph (Nate) was admired, respected and loved by many. Those closest to Nate realized and celebrated the grand efforts he was making to better his life in hopes of someday being the "best" father to his very own child.
On 6/11/18, Nate aka Fat Mike's life was taken suddenly at the hands of a reckless driver, only a few months prior to the birth of his eagerly anticipated first child.
Through this tragic event, the paradigm of Nate's life unfolded before our eyes and taught us a valuable lesson; that at some point in our lives, we all "Need an Angel".
The Need an Angel Sons and Daughters Association was formed to empower youth and young adults to create, lead productive fulfilling lives, and to make their dreams come true.
IT'S ABOUT CHANGING LIVES.
To give hope, confidence and self-awareness to teens and young adults in low-income, minority communities.
We envision a world in which young people will have the power to withstand hardship and to create vital, flourishing lives for their families and communities.
For us nothing is more rewarding than watching youth blossom as adults. We believe that all youth need encouragement and that all children should be raised by encouraging uplifted parents.
