W.K. Kellogg Foundation funds National Community Resiliency Project (NCRP)

The Center is pleased to announce that the W.K. Kellogg Foundation is funding another two years of the National Community Resiliency Project (NCRP) to the tune of $200,000. The funding allows the Center to continue its work partnering with local organizations to bring 3 Principles training to more people, agencies and communities in areas of the United States struggling with economic and social challenges.

The focus for this funding year (May 2011 to May 2012) will be on the Lakewood neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina, which is now in Year 3 of the NCRP, and in communities in the Mississippi Delta, now in Year 2 of the NCRP. One of those Delta communities is the Advent Heights housing project in Greenville, Mississippi.

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, established in 1930, supports children, families and communities as they strengthen and create conditions that propel vulnerable children to achieve success as individuals and as contributors to the larger community and society. Grants are concentrated in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, and southern Africa. For further information on the foundation, please visit www.wkkf.org
