We build public and private partnerships to administer grant dollars toward targeted programs.

The Simple Way

Kensington Community Resilience Fund

Through our food choice pantry, community gardens, resource-sharing, and neighborhood celebrations, our staff of community members helps our residents meet their basic needs and creates an environment that feels safe and beautiful for them and their families, which is crucial for long-term improvements in individual and community health.

About

For the past 25 years, our desire has been to care for, support, and bolster our immediate neighbors here in Kensington through listening, learning, and invitation. Through our food choice pantry, community gardens, resource-sharing, and neighborhood celebrations, our staff of community members helps our residents meet their basic needs and creates an environment that feels safe and beautiful for them and their families, which is crucial for long-term improvements in individual and community health. We prioritize listening to, believing, and centering the stories, experiences, and needs of our neighbors and community as we seek to work for and with them.

While we have built an incredibly sustainable program over the years, our opportunities for growth are limited without an investment of additional funding. We want to collaborate with partner organizations in our community to build a hub of health that will provide multiple resources for our residents in a single location. We want to provide opportunities for employment to people in our community. We want to se the transformation in our neighborhood continue and increase. This grant will make a real difference in us being able to meet these goals.
