Vaughan Community Services
Vaughan Community Services (VCS) was established in 1965 as a community outreach program for the First Church of Christ, Congregational in North Conway, New Hampshire, however there is no religious affiliation associated with the services provided.
The service was created for the purpose of alleviating unmet and undermet needs of the community. Since its inception Vaughan Community Services has provided for a great number of health and human service needs in the Mount Washington Valley located in northern New Hampshire.
