We take a different approach
At New Kensington Community Development Corporation (NKCDC) we are taking a different approach to the difficult challenges in Kensington:
- COLLABORATIVE. We believe that sustainable change comes from diverse partners working together.
- TRAUMA-INFORMED. Awareness of the impacts of chronic stress on individuals and communities makes NKCDC and its partners more compassionate—and more effective—in struggling neighborhoods.
- EQUITY-FOCUSED. With an eye to equity, we apply resources where needs and opportunities are greatest. We promote leaders of color in our staff, board, and community.
- COMMUNITY-DRIVEN. Perhaps most importantly, we believe that community change should be designed, implemented, evaluated, and for the benefit of the community we serve. We are building coalitions that are leading community-driven development in Kensington.
