In 1977, the Prince Rupert Youth Enrichment Society was incorporated, focusing on establishing, maintaining and promoting programs for the purpose of the rehabilitation and social improvement of youth.
In 1981, the Society changed its name to the Prince Rupert Community Enrichment Society to include the broader community and provide services to children, youth, adults and families in the City of Prince Rupert. Programs and services offerings changed over the years, due to funding changes with the Ministry of Children and Family Development, Northern Health Authority, and the Ministry of Justice.
In 2015, North Coast Community Services was introduced, with two past-employees creating the new logo's first design. NCCS become the operating name for the Prince Rupert Community Enrichment Society. It was an exciting time with Society diversifying and expanding programs to ensure comprehensive services for infants, children, youth, adults and families are available in Prince Rupert and the surrounding communities along the north coast.
In 2017, the Society's legal name was changed to North Coast Community Services Society. Program service delivery models and programs are being revised and/or just starting to ensure inclusive and relevant supports are available to all clients. These models/programs include the Common Bowl (supervised access visits), the Multi-Sensory Playroom and the Cradles to Moccasins Family Centre. The Society continues to evolve, always striving to reach its goals of providing relevant, culturally safe and timely services to those individuals in need of support.
