North Kent Connect 50th Anniversary

We’ve got a story for you!

From humble beginnings to a comprehensive 28,400-square-foot resource center, North Kent Connect has come a long way in 50 years! But one thing that has never wavered is the mission – to help people move forward and out of crisis.

2023 was a year-long celebration commemorating NKC’s 50th anniversary. In lieu of cake and ice cream, we interviewed 50 people who have watched NKC grow into what it is today. Click the link below to hear wonderful memories from past executive directors, donors, pastors, staff, and volunteers who have been with NKC since the start and some who are still here today.
