Half a Century of Service By: Terry Callahan

The Neighborhood Service Center, Inc. (NSC) has provided aid and services for low-income residents since 1969 when it was begun by a group of concerned Talbot County citizens and activists, including the Talbot County Council and the Town Creek Foundation. Fifty years later, the NSC’s mission, “Works Toward Eliminating Poverty By Empowering Families To Be Self-Sufficient” is still relevant. First housed inside the Borden-Stanley Building on Goldsborough Street, the NSC later was able to build its facility on Port Street with the Talbot County Council’s support of a Community Development Block Grant. Under the leadership of the late Herbert Andrews, the Council designated the NSC as the county’s anti-poverty agency.
