Great Northern Services brings community our development experience to your door. We seek and manage funding sources which, in turn, benefit local communities.
Invigorate – Initiate – Improve
Great Northern Services invigorates communities by initiating positive social change to improve economic conditions.
We provide programs that support equal access across society in all streams – to reduce hunger in children, seniors and veterans, make homes healthy and free of environmental hazards, offer access to business capital, foster community development of infrastructure for safe water, sewer, and high-speed communications delivery, and we deliver the research and resources to support such projects.
We navigate communities toward positive growth and change. These transformations increase community values for their citizens.
GNS promotes proactive decision-making and planning by offering guidance, tools, research, and support. We believe that communities must explore and identify their unique economic, natural, physical, and human attributes. Once these traits are identified, they can guide communities through difficult decision-making processes. In doing so, they will improve their chances of building successful and sustainable futures.
As Community Development Professionals, we value:
- Partnerships through internal and external collaborations
- Uniqueness of individuals and communities
- Education as a means for people to access information, make decisions, and identify assets, capacities, needs, resources, and solutions
- Civic involvement through participation and partnership, to improve the quality of community life
