The NSMCSS Collaborative is a group of agencies who provide community support services in the NSM LHIN region. These agencies all receive LHIN funding as well as funding from other sources. The agencies provide a wide range of services to adults with ongoing community needs. Services include meals, transportation, disability assistance, supportive housing and more. Agencies range from small to large and some are provincial or national.
