Background Since 2004, the Northside Outreach Center (NOC), a non-denominational Christian -based 501(c)3 organization, has been working in Highland Park within the Northside of Richmond by assisting low-income families, providing opportunities for underprivileged children, and revitalizing the local economy. In addition to providing a number of our own programs, the NOC leverages skills and services of other organization through formal and informal partnerships. We identify needs and build connections with community members, which in turn, enable other nonprofit organizations to provide services more effectively. The NOC's stable presence in the community positions us to serve the residents with consistency. We have seen that the commitment to stand by families who desire to make a better life for themselves and their children is making a lasting difference. We are committed to the improvement of the quality of life for the residents of Highland Park.
CEO Statement
The NOC is unique in that we are an on-the-ground resource connection for our community. We partner and network with other organizations working in the area to insure that no individual need is left unmet. We seek out those who are already successfully addressing various needs within the community, and whenever possible, work in partnership with those organizations, thereby eliminating any duplication of efforts.

In addition, we work with the Gang Reduction Intervention Program (GRIP), the local police force, the Richmond Truancy Department, and the staff at Overby Sheppard Elementary.
Programs
Description
JSS is a discipleship program for at-risk teen girls. Through the development of close, continuous mentoring relationships, our ultimate goal is to enable these girls to see their true value through Jesus Christ and to develop healthy lifestyle habits and leadership skills. JSS is also designed to teach and encourage the girls to develop their God-given abilities and build self-esteem through scriptural truth.
Budget $1,000.00
Description

Overcomers Outreach (OO) is a Christ-centered 12-step program for individuals affected by any type of addiction. Overcomers' mission is to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the hurting, and to meet human needs in His name.The support group participants, whatever their need, find the extra care and encouragement necessary to grow beyond the wounds of life’s battles, the difficulties in family relationships, the bondage of addictive habits and behaviors, and the isolation caused by shame. Our meetings are filled with the faith, hope, and love that only God can provide.

Budget $1,000.00
Description The Community Christmas Store provides parents and guardians with limited income the opportunity to purchase new toys and gifts for children in their care. The Northside Outreach Center asks churches to purchase new gifts to donate to the store. The gifts are priced at 20 percent of their purchase price. A Community Store is set up in a tent with gifts grouped by age-level. Shopper are greeted and checked in to ensure that they are from the neighborhood. The person is given two tickets for each child for whom they are shopping. A shopping guide volunteer works with the parent/guardian to select appopriate gifts. There are refreshments and music to make it a festive occasion. The shopper then checks out and pays for the gifts. Money received from the shoppers is used to purchase Christmas meals for families that cannot afford a holiday feast. This event relies heavily on volunteers, using about 50 to make sure the store is a success.
Budget $1,000.00
Description Takin' It To The Streets is our monthly community outreach! We pull out the grills, hand out delicious free food, and share the love of Jesus with anybody who happens to be walking by. We also provide games for the kids and time for parents, families, and individuals to relax and enjoy themselves in a safe, non-threatening environment. This event gives us an opportunity to serve our neighbors in a fun and practical way, and our partnering churches/organizations a way to connect to the community face-to-face. 
Population Served Families
Budget $800.00
Short Term Success 150-200 residents from Highland Park in attendance monthly. Individuals and families returning month-to-month and sharing their positive experience with others. Churches and other organizations volunteer to serve food and help with the event.
Long Term Success This program encourages safe, friendly community gatherings for the future. It will instill a sense of belonging and loyalty to Highland Park as individuals grow to know and love one another and their home. Churches and organizations from around Richmond will provide continual support for Highland Park because of their positive experience in the neighborhood and advocate for change and renewal.
Description

The Highland Park food pantry is open on the 3rd Saturday of each month. Our close relationship with Destiny City Fellowship Church and our next door neighbor, Boaz and Ruth, allows us to provide the pantry as a registered partner of FeedMore. Residents from Highland Park who have registered with us, and meet the federal poverty standards, are able to come get the food that they need for free from the pantry. As with our other ministries, the food pantry is run solely by volunteers and depends heavily on the food and financial contributions of our partners to sustain it. Consider volunteering on a Saturday, or donating non-perishable food items to keep this vital resource fully stocked.

Long Term Success

The food pantry assists this low income community with needed food which normally includes fresh meat as well.

CEO/ED/Board Comments
Our greatest opportunity is to reach more kids by bringing them into the after school programs we have in partnership with the Youth Life Foundation of Richmond. We are constantly approached by parents/grandparents in the community as to how they can get their kids into our program. Unfortunately we can not capitalize on this wonderful opportunity due to the limited space in our current facility. We are busting out at the seams as it is and have no ability to accomodate any more kids. We continue to seek partnerships within the Highland Park community that may allow us an opportunity to expand, but have thus far not been able to establish. Therefore, our emphasis is on developing the property we have acquired into a 8,000 sq. ft. community center which will not only provide enough space for us to expand, but will also be able to house new programs, either our own or through partnership with other organizations, that will address some of the unmet needs in our community.

Organization Comments
Since its founding, the NOC has relied on volunteer support in order to provide the programs and outreach to the community that we have. Because of this, our expenses for these programs is extremely low. Often we receive financial contributions to fund specific events. In addition, our learning center is operated in partnership with the Youth Life Foundation of Richmond, which provides the majority of the financial support to this program, including funding the teacher salaries. The NOC provides building space rent free for the learning center, as well as pays for all utilities incurred in its daily operation. The NOC also provides a volunteer base that works with the learning center kids as mentors and tutors.
