Northside Community Support Program

The Northside Community Support Program (NCSP) helps adults overcome the challenges of mental illness, trauma, COVID, and more. As a free, membership-based program, NCSP’s goal is to make sure people have access to community-based services, therapy, or sometimes just a friendly ear.

NSCP staff work closely with many local community partners to ensure people can connect to emergency food, employment supports, legal assistance, and more.

NCSP members develop long-term relationships with staff and other members, and through this support, they renew their sense of dignity and hope. 


The program’s drop-in hours are:

  • Monday:
    10:00am – 2:00pm
  • Tuesday:
    10:00am – 3:00pm
  • Wednesday:
    11:00am – 3:00pm
  • Thursday:
    10:00am – 2:00pm

Capacity is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. Outside of those hours, we are offering services by appointment only. Call 612-521-2116 to get connected.

NSCP welcomes any adult resident (18+) of Hennepin County who is living with a mental illness, trauma, and other challenges.  Many members also experience substance abuse or have other co-existing disorders.

NCSP frequently assists with immediate needs for at-risk individuals.
