Most likely this is true, since they lost their grant some time ago and were looking for an alternative way to exist. They don't answer their phones or respond to email. Does anyone have any more information about the NRCC's status?
I actually talked to a guy there last week, I didnt know they were closing and I was looking to volunteer. He told me that they were closing until they could find more money. They lost there funding right after IKE so they have been hanging on for a while. Now I do know that he said IKE messed up a lot of places down there though he didnt say if the NRCC was one of them. He kind of implyed that IKE was at least part of the reason they pulled the funding. He was pretty unhappy about it but thats all I know.
