We are proud to have served so many of our neighbors here in Plymouth, but there are so many more people that can be helped throughout Marshall County.
One of our goals in 2011 is to reach out to our friends outside of Plymouth. We want people in Culver, Bourbon, Bremen, Argos, Lapaz and all those other small towns to know that we are here, we care about them and their community, and we will help in any way we can.
We are currently making plans to attend local festivals and fairs throughout the summer and fall. We want to spend time reaching out to your communities and we are excited at the chance to do so through these celebrations.
As with anything that MCNC does, we cannot do this alone. As we build more and better relationships with our clients in these outlying towns we know that we will inevitably encounter newer and bigger difficulties in making sure that everyone has equal access to the services they need. We anticipate one of these needs to be transportation and are looking for partner organizations or businesses willing to help transport people from your town to MCNC once a week.
You can help us by letting those in need know we are here. Also, if you know of anyone who may be interested in learning more about MCNC and how they can support us, please help us connect with them. As always, you make us “The Heart of the Neighborhood”.

At the heart of our organization is the desire to truly impact someone’s life. This month, I want to share a letter we received from one of our ongoing Case Management clients. She came to us about a year ago and soon after joined the Case Management program. She has consistently worked toward meeting her long term goals and is a volunteer at MCNC. We are proud to serve her and her family.
“ In the past year, I have seen changes in my family as well as myself. MCNC has helped with food, clothing, and the holidays. MCNC has encouraged me to stop focusing on the negative and switch to the positive. I have been given hope that led me to be more stable and independent. She (Sara Hill) has taken the time to run errands for me to obtain a job. I didn’t (haven’t) gotten hired, however, Sara says, ‘they don’t know what they’re missing’. MCNC believes in you when you do not. You feel at ease and confident in your life choices. I thank God, He has sent MCNC and Sara Hill our way to help me and all the others in our times of need. It is truly a blessing and a privilege…” - “Mary”*
