Our Mission


We are committed to helping Assyrians in need; promoting education; and preserve the Assyrian history and culture because A fundamental aspect of human nature is the need to identify with one’s origins. For unless you know where you came from and what you came from, you cannot know who you are or what you are. And if you don’t know that, you cannot reach the fullest level of self-realization of which the human spirit is capable. (Dr. Joel J. Elias – Nineveh West, 4/1977)
