"At the end of the day it's about the children."

Northside Coalition for Children, Inc continues to believe servant leadership can change a community one family at a time. 

We are excited to continue providing a much needed service for the students and teachers in the Richmond City region. Regardless of your zip code, we will provide free school supplies and free teacher supplies because we believe in every child and teacher must be equipped to start their school year. We are believe in our students finishing their academic year as strong as they can.  While  continuing to combat COVID-19, Northside Coalition for Children, Inc. will continue to serve the children, families, and teachers in the Richmond region with school supplies needed for virtual learning, snack bags, and resources  to get them through the first semester. We are here, dedicated to servant leadership. prepared to serve, and ready to serve.

Even though, our communities, businesses, places of worship, and public schools continue to be impacted by COVID-19 in so many ways, NCC members continue to support families villages with school supplies while we are dedicated to providing teachers and students in the Richmond region with resources and school supplies at no cost to them. We, undoubtedly, will as a community family, get through this together! To continue our commitment with supporting the "Whole" family, we will have a donation drive-thru on December 17 and Christmas day for families in need of school supplies, food, and coats. 

The NCC was founded on the value of servant leadership and the belief we may not can change the world but we can change our community one family at a time. Northside Coalition for Children, Inc is a non-profit organization founded in 2008 with the vision of serving all children residing in the City of Richmond, Virginia with a backpack filled with school supplies who attend a public school. We are so fortunate to continue to provide school supplies at no cost to so many families residing in  the Richmond region.

Our Mission: 
Northside Coalition for Children was founded with the mission to serve families residing on the Northside of Richmond, Virginia with school supplies. Creating partnerships with our families, the school system, and local businesses is deeply rooted in the work we do for our families and the communities we serve.
