About NCO

NCO is the Community Action Agency that serves Lake and Mendocino Counties, as well as parts of Humboldt, Sonoma, Del Norte, and Solano Counties. NCO was established in 1968 as part of President Johnson's War on Poverty, with the mission of assisting low-income and disadvantaged people to become self-reliant. NCO operates over a dozen programs and projects:

NCO employs 200 people, has an annual budget of approximately $15 million, and has successfully managed major grants from federal, state, and foundation funders. NCO values diversity and everyone is welcome, no matter a person's ethnicity, religion, country of origin, language, abilities, sexual orientation, or gender.

About the NCO Governing Board

NCO is seeking new members for its 12-person volunteer Governing Board. The Governing Board represents a cross-section of the community, and membership is equally composed of representatives for low-income community members, locally elected officials, and the community at large. Meetings are held monthly on the fourth Wednesday of the month, and alternate between Ukiah and Lakeport. Terms are two years, and there is no term limit.
