Our Mission

NNOC is an outreach center that contributes to the health of the Maplewood and Edgerton neighborhoods.  Using “walk-in hospitality” to connect with our neighbors in need, NNOC’s mission is to assess and address clients’ needs at whatever point they are in life. Working in collaboration with other service providers, as well as using client peer support and encouragement, we help our clients advance toward self-sufficiency, which will improve the neighborhood as a place to live, work, play and worship.
