Funding Needs

NECCS is a small, passionate survivor driven organization with a broad mandate and a big vision for its future. It has existed since 1995 on a shoestring budget and the commitment of a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors. It is now at a point where its infrastructure must expand to support existing programs and services and facilitate growth. Thanks to the synergistic alignment of various initiatives - such as recruitment of new board members, the creation of a strategic vision and plan, and the launching of a new web site - NECCS is poised for growth and a significant expansion of its capacity if it can attract appropriate partners. NECCS is most in need of capacity building/general operating support but also welcomes program specific support.
