Resources

Finding help for yourself or an individual in our community can be difficult and time consuming. Although there is often help available for most situations, finding the right community resource to fit that situation can be difficult.


nbCC Resource Guide

This guide outlines local resources including food access sites, disability services, family services, housing, transportation, substance use support, youth services, and many more.

These agencies and programs have a common goal of helping people in our community and can be accessed directly. We update the guide every two years.

For questions or to suggest additions or edits to future editions please contact us by calling (413) 663-7588.

Family Conversation Cards

nbCC is proud to offer Family Conversation Cards, a deck of cards meant to encourage and promote discussion and healthy decision-making between youth and parents.

Studies demonstrate that young people who can openly communicate with their parents on a regular basis—and feel like they are being heard—are less likely to engage in a wide range of risky behaviors, and that these benefits extend after high school.

While talking openly with your children can be difficult, research shows that as children enter early adolescence, they are less likely to disclose aspects about their life to their parents, so creating ways to have healthy communication is especially important.

All questions can be asked by a parent or child. Questions are color-coded green, yellow or red.

The purpose of the cards is not to identify right and wrong answers but to spark conversation.
