Neighbor Outreach Connection
Founded in 2008 by Dr Naren Sharma, NOC's mission is to help the poor and those who are vulnerable through its core programs including education (preschool, after-school, and adult education), health services, and workforce development. Education is NOC's flagship program and the primary beneficiaries are children and women. NOC started with only 5 children and, in just five years, has grown to more than 300 children. It has a strong presence in the neighborhoods and makes a difference in the lives of many people, especially the children, living in low-income neighborhoods.
