We were proud to celebrate this milestone throughout the last fiscal year (July 2021 – June 2022). Since its establishment in 1956, NSSC has been so much more than its multiple locations. Our founders had the foresight to embrace the full meaning of the definition of a senior center as a place that extends its reach beyond the walls of its buildings. Most of the 24,000 people we serve do not visit the Center in Northfield; we meet them in their homes, in supported living facilities, in hospitals, and in skilled nursing facilities. 


Through the years, NSSC has evolved to meet the changing needs of older people—a sign of our success and longevity. We are proud of both, and of the work that continues every day. This year we began to develop a strategic plan that will guide NSSC for the next three years. It provides the framework for evolution, sustainability, and the essential work that we do in the communities we serve. Within this framework our compassionate staff, talented volunteers, and dedicated board of directors continue to foster the independence and well-being of those whose lives we touch.


NSSC believes that all older adults have a right to live with dignity, respect, and support from their community. Together, with our many partners, we will continue to meet their needs as well as the needs of their families and caregivers, for another 65 years and beyond! 



With gratitude for your support,

In September 2022, NSSC’s Board of Directors approved an ambitious three-year strategic plan that identifies three core strategic directions to guide the organization for the fiscal years 2023 through 2025. These strategic directions recognize NSSC’s commitment to its current work and provide the flexibility and guidance for redefining the future of the organization while making a bold commitment to increase the participation of diverse communities and individuals; advance equitable practices and processes; and enhance inclusion and accessibility.
