CEO Statement

NCCCO is a rural State Incorporated 501(c)(3) Community Organization established to provide services to a wide range of its citizenry. There is a disproportional high number of poorer youth (mostly African Americans) and elderly in the catchment’s area.  Many programs have been initiated and are in various phases of piloting.

 
The Organization needs an infusion of economic support to achieve maximum servicing goals.  Hopefully, NCCCO, which has received several in service and cash awards from various individuals, will receive funding commensurate with the proven goals of the Organization. Our main goals of service to the community are augmented by the desire to impact the attained educational goals of a functioning society. In this way, NCCCO is a lighthouse for the Community in need of many basic services.

Northumberland County
The Northumberland County Community Center Organization is an oasis in a desert of low socio-enconomic communities.  The Center is located very close to the Light Street federal housing program.  Through the effort of some of NCCCO's leaders, many low income families have been able to afford to buy houses at reduced rates and lower mortgages.  This community used to house many individuals who had neither utilities or running water.  Our efforts are aimed at these as well as many other impoverished and low and median income persons.

CEO/ED/Board Comments
The catchment area serviced by the Northumberland County Community Center Organization is a mostly economically depressed area of Northumberland and Lancaster counties.  The Organization was founded by two well-intentioned ladies who have since passed away.  The Organization must raise a minimum of $5,000 a quarter to pay for the mortgage and expenses of the building.  It relies on the generosity of members of its Board of Directors.  Its strength is the volunteers who make up the NCCCO.  They host dinners, breakfasts and dances to raise money whenever necessary.
 
The mainly African American organization demonstrates effective leadership skills of this group in completing the mission and goals of the organization.
