Our Mission

The Neighborhood Service Center, Inc. works toward eliminating poverty by empowering families to be self-sufficient.

The Neighborhood Service Center, Inc. is a non-profit Community Action Agency that provides services and assistance to low-income families and elderly residents in Talbot County Maryland.

Community Action Agencies equip low-income citizens with the tools and potential for becoming self-sufficient. The Neighborhood Service Center – Talbot County’s Community Action Agency – has been serving the low-income residents of the county since 1969. Beginning as an off shoot of the Tri County Community Action Agency, NSC began as a small non-profit that provided not only emergency services but hope, stability and support to hundreds of families in Talbot County.

Requests for services have increased in every area over the forty-nine years the Neighborhood Service Center has been operating in Talbot County. Economic conditions have contributed to the demands for the increase in families seeking help.

Unlike other local service providers, The Neighborhood Service Center serves the total family. NSC’s focus is to promote self-sufficiency, not dependency. With other community partners NSC can provide its low-income residents the right mix of assistance, encouragement and incentives to become self-sufficient.
