NAC’s mission is to provide innovative high quality services in support of birth, foster, and adoptive families caring primarily for medically complex children.

NAC’s services enable children to remain in or to be returned to their families whenever possible or to be adopted by loving families.

Support for Children with Disabilties

NAC's accomplishments are achieved through the provision of both health and social services, based on a family-strengths perspective. Comprehensive, multidisciplinary support services are provided through two major program divisions at NAC: the Preventive Services Program and the Foster Care and Adoption Program. The Preventive Services Program provides comprehensive family support services including parent support groups, sibling groups, and Partners In Parenting (PIP) an after-care preventive services program. The program incorporates key principles of strengthening families, keeping them intact, and helping each individual within the family to become more self-sufficient, while at the same time providing services to reduce the risk of abuse, neglect and/or placement of a child into foster care. Within the Foster Care and Adoption Program exists the Homefinding Department, Therapeutic Foster Boarding program, and the Post Legal Adoption Network (PLAN). Both program divisions use a multidisciplinary team approach that is flexible and mobile. NAC brings its services to its clients whenever this is needed. Caseloads are small and coordination of services is a priority. The Preventive Services and Foster Care and Adoption Programs are supported by several other direct service programs at NAC. The following programs are vital components of NAC's ability to offer coordinated and comprehensive care to its client families. - Licensed Article 28 Medical Clinic, where developmental and medical evaluations as well as medical services coordination are provided by a Developmental Pediatrician and Clinical Nurse Specialists. - Licensed Article 31 Mental Health Clinic provides a range of on-site services, including mental health evaluation, counseling, group therapy and referral services. - Educational Services include planning, intervention and advocacy as well as an Early Intervention Services Program. Depending on family needs, group services are offered including parenting education classes, tutoring, a college-bound program and a changing schedule of other educational groups. - Recreation Programs and Volunteer Services provide summer camp placement and support, a variety of special workshops for children, mentoring, the NAC Kids Olympics and special outings in the communiy through the NAC Volunteer Corps. - Information, Referral and Advocacy Services are provided to assist client families to gain or regain stable, self-sufficient lifestyles. An experienced Resource Specialist provides assistance for: housing/ homelessness prevention, entitlements, GED preparation, English as a second language, job training and placement, after-school and recreation programs, and immigration issues. NAC also operates programs providing practical and emergency support for clients, including a diaper coop, a food, clothing and toy bank, and financial aid for emergencies and special needs including rent assistance, the purchase of special medical equipment, furniture, and summer camp tuition. - Transportation Services are provided through NAC's nine vans and drivers. They bring clients to and from NAC, as well as to other appointments in the community.
