NEK Prosper! envisions a community where everyone is Financially Secure, Mentally Healthy, Physically Healthy, Well Housed & Well Nourished

We aspire to build our collective and community capacity to dismantle systemic inequality and marginalization, foster community leadership and community-driven solutions and ensure fair and just opportunity to health and prosperity.

Our work to achieve each outcome is done by our Collaborative Action Networks (CANs).  CANs are groups of cross-sector practitioners and individuals who organize around one of the NEK Prosper! community level outcomes, develop and implement action plans to achieve the outcome, and use continuous improvement processes to measure their impact and improve their strategies over time.

NEK Prosper! recognizes and acknowledges the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk Abenaki Nation as the traditional stewards of this land we occupy.  We acknowledge, appreciate and honor the indigenous people who have been living on, working on and caring for the land from time immemorial.

We recognize that colonialism, racism and the oppression of Native peoples is an ongoing process.  We commit to building our awareness of our present participation.
