North Shore Community Resources (NSCR) envisions the North Shore as a thriving, interconnected community of family, friends, neighbours and colleagues who live, work and play together, providing support to those who need it and ensuring the well-being of all. NSCR is committed to putting this vision into practice. NSCR fosters social connections to reduce social isolation and improve feelings of belonging. We empower people with information and resources so they are able to make good decisions for themselves. NSCR encourages and nurtures community participation so people can better connect to and support our neighbours and build thriving, democratic communities.
In the 1970s when NSCR was founded, Mr. Rogers’ advice to children facing scary or difficult things was, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” Since 1976, NSCR has been the place to find ‘the helpers’, the staff and volunteers who care deeply about the welfare of their community. Today, however, just looking for the helpers is insufficient. At NSCR, we recognize we cannot meet the significant social service needs of our community alone. We need you to step-up and be a helper.
This year, NSCR staff, volunteers and board members are trying to raise $15,000 in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge. This money will help us continue supporting families, seniors, caregivers and other community members in need. We are running, walking, cycling and asking the caring people in our lives to support us with donations.
