The Nord Center – Celebrating 70!

How Your Gift Makes a Difference


For 70 years, The Nord Center has been meeting the mental health care needs of Lorain County. From recruiting the County’s first psychiatrists to implementing innovative care for people experiencing their first psychotic break, The Nord Center has remained at the forefront of providing evidence-based treatment that works.

The Nord Center provides services in four key areas: core mental health services; crisis and suicide prevention; supportive housing; and sexual assault services.

While known primarily for its services for adults, the agency has provided core mental health services to adolescents and children since 2005. Families seek help for issues ranging from a child’s self-harming behavior to difficulties at home or in school.

The Nord Center’s emergency crisis, housing and sexual assault services operate 24 hours per day 365 days per year. The sexual assault services program provides services to both children and adults including the county’s only dedicated sexual assault care unit equipped with specialized tools for evidence collection and injury detection.

An efficient steward of the community’s resources, 88 cents of every dollar raised by The Nord Center directly funds patient care. Your contribution to the 70th Anniversary Benefit will help fill the critical gap when reimbursement for services does not meet their full cost and ensure that The Nord Center can continue to not turn away anyone needing help due to an inability to pay.
