  A Word from the NRFS Staff Team,

At this time we would like to thank our community members, local businesses and clubs for the generous support and offers to help individuals and families in our catchment area during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a team we have successfully transitioned to working remotely, while still caring for and supporting our clients.

The NRFS Board of Directors and Staff, have effectively problem-solved ways to offer our services remotely. Although some of our regular services have seen minor interruptions, we have created new effective ways to deliver our supports and services, while respecting everyone’s safety.

 If you need help, please call. We are here to help.
