mission & vision

Our Mission

Northern Children’s Services supports the healthy development of children and youth, while stabilizing their families to build stronger communities.

Our Theory of Change

We help children and their families do better today, so that we all do better tomorrow.

Everything we do at Northern Children’s Services is designed to create a better future for our families. We believe that every child and youth has the potential to transform themselves – no matter their background or life situations. If we invest in that potential through services that focus on care, safety, health, permanency, independence, and positive relationships, then children, youth and their families will lead happier and healthy lives.

NCS New Day

We are old and wise. We are young and learning. We are the oldest, wisest start-up in the city and I look forward to leading Northern Children’s Services to further success addressing the trauma of our communities, our children and our families.
