National Youth Advocate Program
NYAP is universally recognized as the premier provider known for trailblazing creative
and effective community based solutions.
A Message from the President & CEO, Marvena Twigg
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to express my
thanks and appreciation to all of our stakeholders, staff, and
most importantly the children, youth, and families we serve.
National Youth Advocate Program, Inc. (NYAP) takes seriously our
commitment to providing the most integrative, supportive, and
empowering services available.
That being said, NYAP was very busy in 2012. Whether it was
opening up new offices, merging with another organization, or
having a few new faces join our leadership team, we sustained our
expectation of excellence. While growing and expanding in 2012,
our quest of providing superior services to over 2000 children,
youth, and families in six different states had never been stronger.
On this journey we are consistently trying to improve our quality
and the outcomes we achieve while receiving high recognition for
our various services.
As I look back on this past year, I am proud of the passion and
unwavering commitment of the people we work with everyday and
look forward to our future. I have no doubt that we will continue to
be an energetic instrument of compassion and change in the lives
of children, youth, and families for many years to come.
Sincerely,
Marvena Twigg
President and CEO
Special Thanks to Our Foster Parents
Our dedicated foster parents are an essential part of the NYAP team. We
greatly appreciate and respect their ongoing commitment to provide a safe,
nurturing home to a child or youth in need and the time and perseverance it
takes to be a foster parent. To our foster parents, we thank you sincerely.
The National Youth Advocate Program (NYAP) is a private, notfor-profit youth advocacy organization whose non-negotiable
commitment is to do what is best for children, youth and their
families when overwhelming circumstances have caused the
family to be in need of assistance.
NYAP provides an array of services to young people and their
families. NYAP believes in the power of family living and seeks
to engage families with the natural supports of the community.
NYAP’s service array includes behavioral healthcare and
counseling, in-home services and programming for youth who
are experiencing difficulty in their home, their school and/or,
community; for youth who are sexually reactive and/or abusive;
for youth with substance abuse problems; for youth who identify
as GLBTQ and are grappling with various social, emotional, and
behavioral issues; and for youth who are medically complex.
NYAP’s approach is holistic. We know that young people cannot
be adequately provided for unless we work in partnership with
others including their immediate and extended family, referral
sources, teachers, probation officers and others.
We advocate with public
agencies and officials on
behalf of youth and their
families.
We provide
opportunities and
resources to both youth
and their families
through innovative
programs and services.
Ultimately, we go the
extra mile to help
strengthen families and
their ability to meet their
wants and needs.
We recruit, train, guide and strongly
support our dedicated foster parents.

Who We Are
What We Believe
Our beliefs are at the heart of everything we do. At NYAP,
we believe:

to meet their own needs so that the community is
strengthened and its capacity to care for its members
expanded.
Why We Do What We Do
We work with the family to help them make
the positive changes and sometimes difficult
decisions they face. Assuring safety for
the children while preserving the family is
our goal. We are rewarded when families
recognize and celebrate their progress and
are able to own their successes.
There are few things more rewarding than
serving as an instrument of change, not just to
a young person, but to his or her entire family
and the systems, structures and practices that
affect them.
We do what we do because
we wholeheartedly believe
it’s the right thing to
do—for the young people
who depend on us, for the
families who love them,
for the professional staff
and foster parents who
support them, and for our
communities as a whole.

About NYAP
The National Youth Advocate Program (NYAP) has provided cost effective, community-based services and support to
children, youth and families since 1978. We offer flexible, creative, outcome-based solutions to meet the unique needs of
the communities we serve and the individual needs of the youth and families involved in our programs.
Thanks to a broad continuum of care, we have the flexibility to tailor our services to meet the needs of the agencies we
partner with, and the children and families we are privileged to serve.
NYAP’s revenue is generated by governmental contracts which
is represented by over 200 contracts for services at any given
time. NYAP has consistently earned high marks from independent
auditors for its stewardship of the program’s funds.
Since inception, the National Youth Advocate Program has been
reflective of the character and vision of Dr. Mubarak Awad,
founder and former President & CEO of NYAP. The organization's
history began in Ohio when Dr. Awad created the Ohio Youth
Advocate Program with direct encouragement from the Ohio
Youth Commission (now the Department of Youth Services), the
state agency charged with finding placements for delinquent
youth referred to the state from county juvenile court judges.
In 1978, the state of Ohio ranked number one in the nation in
the number of youth under eighteen years of age held in secure
facilities with Georgia and California a close second and third.
There was a tremendous need for alternative community services
and after-care placements for youth released from institutions.
Mubarak Awad has firsthand knowledge about institutional
care. His mother had been forced to place him and his siblings in
orphanages in Jerusalem after their father was killed in the
1948 Israeli-Arab war. Moreover, as a youth, Dr. Awad acted
out in school and the orphanage, and in another setting might
have found himself in a juvenile court system.
Later, at Ohio’s Bluffton College, Mubarak studied social work and
sociology. Initially, he believed in the value of group therapy
and rehabilitation for troubled youth. He came to understand,
however, that even if youth were successful in a group home or
institution (and many were not), they still had to deal with an
outside world including family and community. Dr. Awad
decided that a better environment for changing behavior and
one that had a greater chance of lasting over the long term
was a family setting in a community. He strongly believes that
youth need to be surrounded by positive role models - yet
another reason for removing them from group homes or
institutions, where the peer group was made up of other troubled
and needy individuals.
Dr. Mubarak Awad
Founder of National Youth Advocate Program
During the 34 years of NYAP’s existence, we have
watched the child welfare community evolve
from being almost singularly focused on working
with children identified as abused, neglected,
dependent or delinquent, to the philosophy we
have embraced since 1978; that the primary
focus must be holistically placed on preserving
and unifying families and strengthening the
communities they call home. This strongly validates
the core values of NYAP’s founder in 1978 and of
everyone associated with NYAP today.
