About Us


As a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, our highest priority is the older adult community. Our work is driven by our passion of serving older adults and their family members in Chicago's northern suburbs. We serve and engage more than 24,000 individuals in 26 communities each year—from the most independent to those needing more support. NSSC offers a comprehensive suite of services including a wide array of social services, specialized care for people living with dementia, counseling, money management, educational and wellness programs, and volunteer opportunities.


Communities We Serve

Today, our two main locations are the Arthur C. Nielsen, Jr. Campus in Northfield and our Senior & Family Services Office in Niles. We also provide counseling and social services for older adults and their families in auxiliary service locations including senior housing, community centers, area hospitals, and village/township offices.
