In honor of their 50 Year Anniversary, North Coast Opportunities, Inc. (NCO) is hosting a family-friendly, class-reunion style picnic from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on August 25th, 2018.

A variety of local vendors will offer fresh food and children’s activities. DJ music will be provided as well as a commemorative NCO photo booth. Local officials will share their appreciation for NCO and the positive impact it’s made within our community. NCO’s History Walk will be a place of exploration to learn how NCO has impacted Lake, Mendocino, and neighboring counties over the past 50 years.

NCO is the community action agency that supports Lake and Mendocino Counties as well as parts of Humboldt, Sonoma, Del Norte, and Solano Counties. This large, open-air, family-style, 50th Anniversary Picnic is an opportunity for all communities served to celebrate NCO’s impact today and into the future.

NCO is one of thousands of community action agencies throughout the nation helping people achieve self-sufficiency. NCO actively seeks new ways to bring resources into the community in the form of grants and partnerships while securing local, state and federal funds. These resources are used to develop and support crucial programs that otherwise would not exist. NCO’s local community action projects are intended to aid those in our community who need it most, and allow disadvantaged people to become self-reliant.

NCO identifies community issues by developing community action plans and seeks new ways to successfully implement change. NCO serves thousands of people each year through a diverse range of projects spanning from volunteerism, disaster relief, childcare and development, food-sustainability, nutrition, and food security. NCO encourages staff and volunteers to take part in local projects and strives to provide volunteers with high-quality experiences that fuel further action.

NCO’s goal is to have healthy, vibrant, compassionate, and strong communities. Through community collaboration NCO makes a difference in the lives of the people they serve. The mission of NCO is to demonstrate respect and integrity and treat individuals, including their ideas and expressions, with dignity, honesty, and fairness.
