Our Vision

A united and diverse community that is safe, healthy, and thriving.

Who We Are

Northeast HELP is a program of the Northeast Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.

Northeast HELP came about because neighborhood leaders and residents saw a need to break down barriers and bring more information and resources to the ethnic-rich community and its underserved residents.

  • A community collaborative has been meeting together, and planning and participating in neighborhood activities since early 2010.
  • Northeast HELP has encouraged many community stakeholders to join the collaborative and bring their resources to the table to assist residents.
  • Four networks have been formed and meet regularly. They include the Health Network, Education Network, Labor Network, and Public Safety Network (each made up of volunteer residents, not-for-profit organizations, businesses, and public agencies with interest or expertise in that area).
