North End Community Helpers NetworkNorth End Community Helpers Network
North End Community Helpers Network (NECHN) is a unique blend of community members, volunteers, staff, and mentors working to improve the lives of those living in the North End of Winnipeg. This grassroots collaboration is seen as a community solution to supporting one another.
The group, originally founded in early 2007 as a support network for a few community members working at Aboriginal Visioning for the North End, Native Women’s Transition Centre, Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre, and Mount Carmel Clinic, has rapidly grown to include upwards of 90 “helpers”, affiliated with more than 30 organizations/groups, and, including many valued community members. It is now seen as an opportunity to collaborate and share – making our individual efforts stronger, by working together.
