Since 1983, NFCC has supported local families with emergency assistance for - housing, utilities, transportation, and basic needs; food; and programming to help people during a crisis and get them back on their feet to regain self-sufficiency.
The mission of the NFCC: To build self-sufficiency and prevent homelessness and hunger in our community by providing emergency assistance and enrichment programs.

NFCC provides emergency assistance for housing, utilities, transportation, and other basic needs to low and moderate income individuals in our community to prevent homelessness.
