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.
