At the heart of LINCS (Linking Individual Needs to Community Services) Family Center’s mission is to provide a compassionate and resourceful neighborhood center that empowers Wilson Area families by linking them to direct community resources by providing educational assistance and support that is needed to raise healthy children and enhance the quality of life for all families. The LINCS Center seeks to help individuals and families connect to the various resources within Northampton County to meet the unique needs that may be causing challenges and difficulties within one’s life. Through a CDBG grant the LINCS Center has partnered with the Wilson Area School District social worker to be a resource outside the school and within the community to help families connect to available services.
