Namaste Foundation supports exceptional nonprofits for a more beautiful world.
The National Incarceration Association (NIA) was born from the personal story of Kate Boccia and her husband Frank. Their son Daniel is incarcerated in a medium security prison in Georgia.
Kate openly reflects on that moment of the night they first received “the call” alarming them that their child had been arrested. Her “journey” was suddenly the same as a growing quiet number of tens of millions of American families.
A domestic nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable corporation, the NIA is now a conglomerate of compassionate business people, devoted community advocates, seasoned public policy strategists and professional service providers. The NIA seeks to highlight the stories of a representative number of those tens of millions of families. Through the perspective of these families the NIA works to reduce the economic costs and social impact of status quo criminal justice policies and practices. [Gift Year: 2017]
