Strategic Plan

In the fall of 2015, the NKC Board of Directors approved an ambitious three-year Strategic Plan.  NKC is taking a hard look at our current programs and assessing whether we’re helping or preventing people from moving forward. We’re expanding our successful Thrive Program, which empowers women to achieve their educational goals and reach a livable wage income.  We’re investigating ways for our clients to invest in themselves, give back to the community, and maintain their dignity. We want people to take control of their lives. A hand up is better in the long run than a hand out!
