Empoderar a La Comunidad Desde 1983

Norris Square Community Alliance (formerly Norris Square Civic Association) is a community development corporation founded in 1983 by a group of community women who desired to take control of their neighborhood and provide a healthy and safe environment for their children.

The mission of NSCA is to empower residents to become self-reliant and to unite and build the community by developing and improving the physical, economic, social, cultural and educational aspects of the neighborhood.

Residents are invited to be active at every level of the organization. Area residents are active at every level of the organization, serving on the staff and board and lending their voice through community forums and surveys.

For over 30 years, NSCA has responded to the needs of the community by providing comprehensive solutions such as affordable housing, community organizing, employment training, early childhood education, youth after-school and summer enrichment programs, homeownership counseling and comprehensive case management services.
