ACS was proud to lead the effort to develop, and now manage the NonProfit Collaborative (NPC). Opened in March of 2017 through a public-private partnership, the NPC:

Improves access to services for residents in need
Fosters innovative collaborations to better serve our community
Provides operating efficiencies by sharing space and resources

Fifteen nonprofit organizations have offices in the NPC. It also provides a mailing address for small and emerging nonprofits. Many more community organizations hold meetings and outreach activities in this space. The NPC anchors the Howard County Community Resources Campus that is located in central Columbia and served by public transit.
