Our Mission

The Nelson Community Services Centre (NCSC) assists people to define the issues affecting them and to determine their own resolutions in recognition of the fact that all individuals and families at some time experience difficulty in their lives.

Further, the NCSC maintains program flexibility to allow us to respond, in cooperation with government and other organizations, to the changing needs in our community.

We value

  • Each person's right to be heard, to be safe, to have information, to make choices and to take control of one's life.
  • Accessible, free programs and services.
  • Ethical service delivery.
  • Non-discrimination.
  • Confidentiality.
  • Teamwork.
  • Being connected to our community and grass roots.
  • All components of a healthy community.
  • Professionalism in our work.
  • Respect for each other and our skills, experiences

Internet safety

Before you go any further, if you believe that you're at risk of abuse (or even worried that you may be at risk), the NCSC wants you to be aware that every web page you visit is recorded by your web browser.

If this concerns you, please take a moment to learn how to cover your tracks.

If you're worried that these precautions may still not be enough, please try to visit this site using a PC somewhere safer - like the public library.
