Building Communities


MISSION STATEMENT:  "To improve the quality of life by providing resources and services within our communities". 


NWCSA as a community-based organization is dedicated to the betterment of life of the low-income residents in its SDA. Wide arrays of programs are offered by way of assistance to alleviate the needs of the disadvantaged. The programs administered by NWCSA include Energy Assistance, Homeless Programs & Services, Food Pantries, TEFAP, WIC, Judicare, RSVP, Free Store, Emergency Assistance, Rental Rehab and others.

The ongoing mission is to identify, demonstrate, support, strengthen and enrich the quality of life for low income individuals and their communities and to enable low income individuals of all ages to attain the skills, knowledge and motivation that are needed to become self-sufficient.
