New Kensington Community Development Corporation (NKCDC) (2018)

Founded in 1985, The New Kensington Community Development Corporation strives to strengthen the physical, social and economic fabric of the Fishtown, Kensington, and Port Richmond neighborhoods in Philadelphia. NKCDC’s multi-faceted approach to community development focuses on increasing the health and sustainability of communities by addressing health and well-being of residents, improving the natural and built environment, and working toward environmental justice in neighborhoods suffering from decades of disinvestment. Using a trauma-informed community development model, NKCDC is investing in a collaborative approach to finding solutions for entrenched problems, and works with community members and partners to increase collective efficacy, reduce violence, and foster community resiliency.
