NLC Support is a Support Coordinating Agency for adults and children with developmental disabilities. Our mission statement is to be here for you, from start to finish.
The meaning of Support Coordination is more that just simply directing you to services. We truly believe Support Coordination is the central link for seamless communication between services and guardians or individuals.
Choosing a support coordination agency is a new experience for a majority of people. Support Coordinators here at NLC make it possible for families to match the person’s wants and needs with skills and expertise. Since people are not aware of what is available in their community, we help you find providers and services that are in your area.
Our Support Coordinators realize how critical it is to have services that are recommended and chosen with you in mind. Choosing the best services for you could be the difference between success and failure. We ensure we call a multitude of services and follow through with an extensive evaluation to ensure the best fit.
