The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic were shift and unexpected, and continue to unfold for our Nokomis East residents and businesses. The Civil Uprising and the destruction of local stores utilized by our community make food insecurity even more challenging.
NENA works arm-in-arm with neighbors and businesses to support and bring resources to our four neighborhoods we all love to call home.
Just in the past year, NENA’s volunteer Board of Directors and committees hosted over 25 small and large events gathering thousands of people to build a stronger neighborhood. Over a dozen homeowners secured NENA home improvement loans and preserved our housing stock. Through grassroots organizing, we reached more than 50 Bossen area tenants and improved multifamily housing and protected renter’s rights. And NENA has touched 2,000 people to share useful neighborhood information through our bi-weekly e-news, website and social media. And that is not all we do together!
We invite you to be an essential member of our community team. You will make a real difference towards funding neighbor-led projects.
