Through the partnership, DANA helped organize and manage charitable events hosted by the NFL.
The partnership later brought out DANA to Michigan and Texas for similar events hosted by the Pro Bowl to help families in high-risk areas.
DANA’s resources and services continue in these states.
In 2017, DANA partnered with Team Mission in sending five (5) young adults, part of its youth, to Africa where they helped in building water wells for clean water in Malawi and build structures for an orphanage in Ethiopia.
Through the experience, these young adults were able to learn how to deal with stress, develop healthy coping skills, and manage in cross-cultural settings.
At the end of the program, they developed a higher level of compassion and the desire to make a universal change.
DANA has locations in Hawaii, Michigan, and Texas.
