The mission of the Middle Peninsula-Northern Neck Community Services Board is to provide comprehensive clinical and support services to those who need us.

We measure and assess their needs, plan for their effective treatment, and assemble the necessary resources to ensure that our services are the best they can be. We seek the participation and consent of those we serve.

We inform and educate the public about the nature of disabilities and the services we offer to help those with disabilities attain their personal goals.
