Our vision is for a vibrant & thriving North End community designed by the community, for the community.
North End Community Connects (NECC) is an initiative bringing together people who care about the North End—families and neighbors, service providers, businesses, government agencies, and funders—towards one goal: To create more opportunities for our community to thrive. Together, we decide what priorities matter most and how we best work on them together.
Community wealth building and strong resource connections are our two current focus areas.
Community Wealth Building
Community wealth building is about increasing economic prosperity and quality of life for every person, family, and the community as a whole. It’s about greater collective ownership, participation, and control of resources and our future by those who live, work, and play in the North End community.
Strong Resource Connections
Strong resource connections is about better connecting community members with quality resources—like relationships, services, knowledge, funding, and opportunities—in the community. This work includes making it easier and faster to connect with services and opportunities offered across organizations as well as improving their accessibility to individuals and families in the community.
