North Shore Volunteers For Seniors

North Shore Volunteers for Seniors (NSVS) is a non-profit society.  Established in 1961, it promotes the independence and well-being of elderly and isolated seniors. Since its inception, the organization has grown and changed, adapting to different financial and societal conditions. However, throughout this time it has maintained its original mandate of promoting the independence and well-being of the elderly, in particular isolated seniors on the North Shore.
