About Us

In 1982 the YVFWC Board of Directors, in response to increased family and youth needs, created a division specifically dedicated to service the education and training needs of school age youth. This division within YVFWC, was first known as Community Education & Counseling Services (CECS), is today know as the Northwest Community Action Center (NCAC). Shortly thereafter, YVFWC received the federal designation as a “Community Action Center.” This was the beginning of providing non-health related services to address the identified education, employment, training and social needs of families and youth.

Our Mission

“Our mission is to create measurable change that will empower at-risk and economically disadvantaged individuals and families to achieve a greater level of self-sufficiency by engaging the local communities and business through advocacy and coordination of economic, educational, social, employment, and human resources.”

For the past 30 years NCAC has been the cornerstone of the community effort to end poverty. From providing emergency services to low income families in crisis, to services that help build individuals skills with the goal of self-sufficiency through education, employment training and empowerment.

We at NCAC pride ourselves in being part of YVFWC and how we provide these services to our community. We hope that the information provided will be useful and if you should have any questions or require additional information please do not hesitate to contact us.
