About Us

The Nathaniel Foundation has many projects that we underwrite and support locally as well as internationally. 

The Nathaniel Center

The Nathaniel Center is a gift to the community!  Owned by The Nathaniel Foundation (founded by Dr. Victoria and Paul Sarvadi), The Nathaniel Center is a jewel in the heart of the Kingwood/Atascocita area.


As co-founders of the Nathaniel Foundation, the Sarvadis philanthropic contributions support numerous charities in the U.S. and abroad. All proceeds from Just a Little Girl will fund the Nathaniel Foundation.

First Century Genesis

First Century Genesis was created to bring the time of Jesus to light. It is our desire to introduce you to our first century Messiah as we explore the Hebraic roots of our faith provided by the gospel of Salvation.

March of Remembrance

March of Remembrance Dallas is a local chapter of a Christian organization that started in Tübingen, Germany. We come together to remember the victims of the Holocaust, stand against anti-Semitism and hate, and reconcile with the Jewish community during the month of Yom HaShoa (Holocaust Remembrance Day) and Kristallnacht.
