What is the Help Centre of Northumberland?
The Help Centre of Northumberland (THCN) carries out its mission to further and promote social justice, equity, and the right to self-determination through services provided through two sister agencies: the Help Centre and the Northumberland Community Legal Centre .
THCN helps the unemployed and disadvantaged residents of Northumberland County through programs that give help for the real world problems of low-income people.
Help Centre Newsletter
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
The Help Centre provides programs in Income Security and Housing Security. The Northumberland Community Legal Centre provides clients with legal advice and representation in common areas of the law related to income, employment and housing. Where there is a gap in services for low-income County residents, THCN strives to create innovative programs to fill those gaps.
How do you reach these services?
The services offered by both agencies are available over the phone or in person at our main office, in a satellite office and if necessary, in the client’s home. Regardless of which agency is contacted first, staff make sure that the client has access to any appropriate program offered by either agency.
Services are free and confidential. Walk-ins are welcome. Toll-free calling is available, and collect calls are accepted by either agency.
