The Neighborhood Christian Center, Inc was founded in 1994 by a small group of churches and local businessmen. They had the desire to provide compassionated, Christ-centered ministry to the practical and spiritual needs
of the city’s poor, envisioning a transformation in
the lives of those we serve, in effect “changing a generation.” Through meeting practical and physical needs
(food, clothes, furniture, household, shelter, etc) of those struggling in the Morgan County community they desired to identify individuals who wanted to break free from
the cycle of poverty. Through the programs offered at the NCC individuals and families are educated regarding
jobs training, parenting and marriage classes, financial counseling, Life Skills 101, Celebrate Recovery, etc.
In the midst of what seemshopeless to many, NCC shines a light of hope, striving to break the cycle of poverty and dependence prevalent in America’s inner cities. By breaking this cycle daily in practical and spiritual ways, we are reaching into the future to change the lives of unborn generations. To those in need, NCC has come to be
identified as a source of hope; to donors and volunteers, the organization has built a solid reputation as an established and effective means to respond to the needs of the poor. The NCC partners with other non-profit agencies, churches, our local government and judicial system to help move clients toward independence.
