Who We Are?

The National Fund for the Awareness of Violence Against Women and Children NAVA was established in 2003 by Leroy Allen, a United States Army military Combat veteran, who experience domestic violence in his home as a small child. Even though his mother was gainfully employed, affordable housing was still a challenge. In honor of his mother Mr. Allen vows to provide housing services with self-help self-esteem programs to those who are committed to helping themselves and their families.

Our Mission

When purchasing NAVA own properties we contributes to their closing cost and down payment.  Great news! You can transfer/sell your property to NAVA, and receive some money. Our organization concentrates on assisting domestic violence and sexual assault victims along with disabled/homeless veterans. We give financial support  to affiliated supportive organizations which offer services such as job training, psychological counseling, childcare, social services programs, credit repair and financial management courses.

Benefits of Transferring or Selling Your Real Estate to a Non-Profit


 If you are in the USA and at risk of losing a home due to a complicated deed, unpaid property taxes, penalties, water bills, and/or civil liens?  you can transfer/sell your property to Nava Fund and receive a fair offer.
Closing the transaction will take place through a title company or an attorney's office. A title search will be performed so that all the necessary paperwork will be properly prepared for the completion of the transfer.  You will be responsible for paying all outstanding waters bills, real estate taxes and any property liens. NAVA will pay for an appraisal, a title search and  the cost all death certificates relating to the property. There are many factors involved in the transferring process.
Advantages of transferring or selling your real estate to NAVA are avoiding a brokerage fee, not being rejected by a real estate agent, and the property is transferred AS-IS. In some cases transfer of the property could result in a tax deduction. All outstanding bills will be paid at the time of settlement. The balance of all proceeds will be paid at closing.

                           True success Story

Ali J. was a victim of domestic violence and was determined to make a better life for her and her two children. She worked two jobs because she wanted to change her circumstances and place her family in a healthier neighborhood. With her tax refund and help from various grants and the assistance of NAVA she was able to purchase her first home from NAVA.

We assisted this home buyer towards her closing cost and adjusting the price so that this single mother of two could become a homeowner. The property was purchased from HUD for the purpose of selling to a first-time homebuyer. We focus on properties that are nuisances in the community which bring down property values. Our organization feels that to make a difference in any neighborhood it must start with house-by-house, block-by-block, job training and job placements in the community.

All proceeds from the sale of the books go to support NAVA’s mission. We use the funds to contribute towards a buyer’s down payment and closing cost. Our fund-raising program, Urban Talk America, is to promote the sale our books.

Unlike most television crime shows, The Wire, created by David Simon,was a fictional portrayal but neatly introduced Baltimore City, an urban America City to the world throughout an entire season. A city of corruption, unsolved homicide and drug cases, a police department under a federal consent decree, and a city official caught with her hands in the cookie jar, leaving fewer funds for the citizens. My reason for writing this book is to tell the world that there are two sides to every story. My side is a real survivor story of a black man living in urban America and how I achieved my goals despite being face with adversity and social stigmatization
