About Us

The Nitz Community Center (NCC) opened on August 1, 2019. NCC was named to honor the memory of Shawn Nitz, a strong advocate in the self-determination community.


Grassroots Self Direction, which provides brokerage to self-determined individuals, spearheaded the vision for NCC, funding the Center’s opening along with donations. John Ciervo, president of Grassroots Self Direction, LLC, and Trevor Walker, broker with Grassroots, partnered to develop and open the Center.


Activities are member-driven. NCC is happy to consider member requests in planning activities or classes or adding to games and other equipment at the Center.


Staffs are available to support all participants in developing activity skills and interacting with others. We also encourage self-determined members to bring their support staff with the understanding that individual support staff are expected to engage with members rather than with their cell phones.


For those members who require more one to one assistance, and are not bringing their own staff, NCC is staffed at a higher level on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.


Boy Scouts, an anime club, and a variety of community classes also take place at NCC. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Nitz Center at 631-775-0734.
