EKNA’s mission is to organize the voice, concerns, and the action of East Kensington residents. 


The East Kensington Neighbors Association was founded in 2004 with help from the community organizing arm (the NAC) of the NKCDC. Geographically,  East Kensington is bounded by Norris Street to the South, Frankford and Trenton Ave to the East, Lehigh Ave to the North, and Front Street/Kensington Ave to the West. Boundaries include both sides of all boundary streets.

EKNA is a Registered Community Group (RCO) with the Philadelphia City Planning Commission for properties within our designated boundaries.

Letterly Green Fundraiser


This past summer EKNA and Friends of Letterly Green worked with Councilman Squilla and the City to successfully preserve the green space Green at the corner of Letterly and Amber Streets. We have half the money we need for the park renovation from the Cedar Hill Foundation but now we need our community to get us the rest of the way to a full renovation. Learn more about the project here, or please donate below now!
