About NOCLS

Connecting people in the community one person at a time!

In April 30, 1984 NOCLS was established as a non-profit society to meet needs of Vernon citizens who were to be re-established in the community due to de-institutionalization.

NOCLS’ values consist of seeing a person rather than a disability. By striving for that goal, the individuals we support will be treated with dignity and respect. By knowing the needs of individuals, we can move on to community participation in every capacity. This can be achieved through supports or individually.
