NOC’s Cordillo Program Center faces possible closure and needs your help.
Neighborhood Outreach Connection is an organization that works to empower low income communities through education, healthcare, and workforce development. We work within the neighborhoods themselves to re-envision the futures of individuals, families, and communities at large through after school programs, health clinics, English and literacy classes, and a host of other services.
Cordillo Courts is one of the only low-income neighborhoods located on the south end of Hilton Head Island, but it is the poorest neighborhood in all of Hilton Head. It serves as home for many of the low-wage workers that our Island’s economy thrives on.
NOC Cordillo was established in 2014 after being invited by Cordillo’s Board of Directors in 2013. This year, 2017, the current Board of Directors is working to remove the same program they fought to implement. NOC serves upwards of 60 children and their families who will experience irreparable harm if this program is altered. NOC also provides health screenings to more 30 individuals per visit.
NOC is in danger and needs your help. Let your voice be heard by clicking on the link below and signing the electronic petition.
