In the aftermath of an unimaginable tragedy, the Need an Angel Sons and Daughters Association (NAASDA) was born.


The journey began with the I Need an Angel Concert, a transformative event envisioned by Beersheba Abernathy to bring healing and inspiration to those in need. Her son, Michael Nathan Rudolph, was invited to be one of the main lead singers, a role he graciously accepted. However, fate had a cruel twist in store. Just before the concert and a few months before the birth of his first child, Nathan's life was tragically taken by a reckless driver. The profound loss shook the community, but it also sparked a powerful realization: at some point in our lives, we all need an angel.


In the face of this tragedy, the Need an Angel Sons and Daughters Association was formed, uniting individuals who recognized the importance of empowering youth and young adults to lead productive and healthy lives and make their dreams come true.


NAASDA has become a beacon of hope, offering programs and initiatives that provide young people with the tools, resources, and mentorship they need to unleash their potential.


From artistic outlets like music and theater to comprehensive training and life skills programs, NAASDA is a sanctuary for creativity, knowledge, and personal growth. 




Empowering youth and young adults through comprehensive programs in nature conservation, arts and culture, and workforce development. NAASDA is committed to fostering personal growth, community engagement, and sustainable futures for every individual we serve.


Cultivating empowered youth and young adult leaders who thrive in a changing world, fostering unity, celebrating diversity, and creating a brighter future for all.



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.


N.A.A.S.D.A is proud to have the support of the following organizations. Our partnerships allow for wider outreach and the ability to serve the community in collaboration with similarly focused groups. If you'd like to support us, contact us below.
