Community Resources

A vibrant community is also a changing community. At North Central Health Care, we work with diverse community organizations to help assess what mental health, skilled nursing, crisis, substance abuse and developmental challenges residents are facing, what services and resources they need and what opportunities we can help develop — facets of building strong communities that improve quality of life. We also gather resources that can be of assistance to community organizations.

Following are a list of resources for friends, family and our communities in Langlade, Lincoln and Marathon counties.
