Thankful Thursdays

December 17 - Northern Children Services

Northern Children's Services serves 2000 children, youth and familes per year supporting the healthy development of children, while stabilizing their families to build stronger communities. Their mission is to help children and their families do better today, so that we all do better tomorrow. If we invest in the potential all children have through services that focus on care, safety, health, permanency, independence, and positive relationships, the children will lead happier and healthy lives.
