About Southern Work Project
The Southern Work Project began with a provocation given by Elder Auldwin Humphrey, M.Div., the first Board Chairman of NAPS. NAPS has worked in various parts of the US and the world, responding to natural disasters, helping to mitigate hunger, working as mentors in lower-income communities, and sharing love through a variety of projects. In Elder Humphrey’s commission to NAPS, he stated that the work in helping to improve the quality of life for the descendants of freed slaves was unfinished and that NAPS should endeavor to serve the forgotten in the Black Belt region of the southern United States. When NAPS learned of the poor conditions in health and education in the Black Belt, the concept of the Southern Work was established. In response to Elder Humphrey’s charge and God’s leading, NAPS ventured to work in faith and was blessed to establish two wellness centers, one clinic, and a school.
