NEK Prosper! leverages relationships and collaborative action to build community health equity.

We envision a community where everyone is Financially Secure, Mentally Healthy, Physically Healthy, Well Housed & Well Nourished.

We know that due to stigma, marginalization and systemic inequalities, not everyone in Caledonia and Southern Essex Counties has fair and just opportunity to prosper.


We can make a difference together.
