MISSION

Our original mission purpose was to create, develop, sponsor, promote and operate programs and services for seniors residing in the North Boroughs communities and portions of Ross Township. We also want to provide such services and programs without charge or for nominal consideration, and to aid in the improvement of the quality and accessibility of services otherwise available to such persons within their communities. In doing so, we hope to help them to live independently for as long as they can. As an interdenominational nonprofit organization we strive at all times to be witnesses to our faith through our association with others as individuals and through our programs.


CURRENT PROGRAMS


HISTORY


North Suburban Adult Services, (NSAS), was founded by the late Marjorie Shillito, then a member of the Fremont Avenue Presbyterian Church, now the Northminster Presbyterian Church. The first meeting of the Steering Committee was held on June 23, 1975. Subsequent meetings led to the filing for Articules of Incorporation which were approved May 24, 1976. Volunteers are and always have been the true source of strength of NSAS. These volunteers represent many Christian denominations, and in the true meaning of their faith, live a life in service to others.
