NDS seeks to engage with the local communities we serve on a range of issues related to economic, legal and racial justice.

NDS staff frequently visits schools, tenant meetings, faith-based organizations, political groups, and social services agencies to engage with the community and provide information and resources.

Whether discussing police interaction, criminal record barriers to housing and employment, ACS involvement, or what to do when ICE comes to your door, NDS provides crucial resources to the community members. We also support the efforts of other community-based organizations through participation in local events and resource fairs, town halls, and community board meetings in order to further our mission and provide information about the variety of legal and social services we offer.
