NOSC operates with four (4) employees to conduct the intake and assessment; link and coordinate the service to the homeless, substance users, mentally disabled, and diagnosed with other physical impairments accompanied with HIV/AIDS. NOSC is the parent company to a subsidiary Non Profit Organization by the name of New Opportunities..Second Chance, Inc. (hereafter known as New Opportunities…) New Opportunities is grant funded and is a member participant with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. The Food Bank feeds the homeless, individuals and families who do not have an income, or those who receive a fixed income and can not afford to purchase the nutritional items required for sustenance.
Unfortunately we witness a rising number of individuals and families that have suffered the malady of their diagnosis lack sufficient funds for medication, co payments, housing, transportation, food, clothing, and utility assistance. Due to the increasing volume NOSC saw the essential need to acquire other programs that would benefit those in need of direct care services. Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment is now available to those who live with co occurring disorders that have interfered with the quality of life. New Outlook Second Chance has evolved to providing an array of much needed services that is a complement to the Case Management protocol.
NOSC has future plans to provide Hospice for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those who transition to the end stages of the disease as well as a Residen
tial Substance Abuse facility to provide a platform for ongoing recovery maintenance. The Holistic approach encompasses the needs of those affected as well as those infected by the AIDS virus, and co occurring disorders.
The persons served state that staff members are “prompt” and “treat us more like family than clients.” Persons served also state they feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect at all times.
When you walk through the doors of New Outlook..Second Chance, Inc. you are welcomed by our team. We extend our full support and treatment platform that embraces new opportunities and second chances.
