Our Mission

NECAC strives to make a difference by Empowering People, Changing Lives and Building Communities.  Our Mission is to assist the disadvantaged within our service area in their efforts to rise above poverty by providing needed services to enable each individual to function at his or her own improved financial, physical, mental and social level.

Our Vision

People will become empowered with their own communities to eliminate poverty so that all residents can enjoy and achieve economic independence. We are committed to building stronger communities by strengthening families. Our visualization is that all community members, including lower income people themselves, will take the responsibility and work together to alleviate the cause of poverty.
