Q. IS NAOYP a religious based group?
A. No. We aren’t out to alienate anyone, impress upon our religious and or cultural beliefs upon anyone either. While we do respect those who seek comfort or solace with these groups or their spiritual advisers we are all inclusive here. We want everyone to feel welcome to come here. All of the people at NAOYP have been hurt or broken in some way and are directly affected by the causes we believe in. That is what we are here for, to share, to inspire and not be afraid of anyone’s pain.
