Located near Fort Worth’s historic Stockyards, NICA was established in 1969 to help serve our community by providing food, clothing, and self-help programs to families in the North side of Fort Worth and surrounding communities.
While the most pressing needs are met through our direct aid programs, our vision is to help families physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.
Providing a hand-up and not just a handout is never our intention. Long-term goals are designed and met through case management, crisis counseling, employment, education, and community services. Our aim is to aid and empower people by either providing or linking them to opportunities that will assist them in getting back on their feet, strengthen their families, and ultimately strengthen their neighborhoods.
