About the North End Community Health Centre
We offer a caring environment where people are treated with respect and dignity where there is equitable access to services.
The North End Community Health Centre (NECHC) is a non-profit organization established 50 years ago in response to an absence of primary health care and other health services in Halifax’s North End. Its original advocates were three determined women who persuaded a team of Dalhousie Medical School physicians to establish the first‐ ever primary health clinic. Located on Gottingen Street, we are in the heart of a unique and culturally diverse community
Over the years, NECHC has grown to offer primary health care, pre and post‐natal care, dental services, nutrition, social work, Mobile Outreach Street Health (MOSH), Housing First, outreach, and advocacy in an environment in which people are treated with respect and dignity and where there is equitable access to services and programs. As well, in the past year, it has branched out and begun managing housing programs for those most in need. NECHC is located in the diverse North End of Halifax, a community home to many social housing buildings, not‐for‐profit housing and co‐ops. It also has a satellite office in North Dartmouth.
NECHC is a non-profit organization and is funded through various grants and charitable donations. We are also partners with the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness and the Nova Scotia Health Authority.
We support health and well-being in our community through quality primary health care, education and advocacy in an environment in which people are treated with respect and dignity and there is equitable access to services and programs.
The NECHC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of members of the community, who bring professional skills, knowledge and expertise to guide the organization. They oversee our strategic direction and financial management.
