Nokomis East Neighborhood Association

Building Community


The Nokomis East Neighborhood Association (NENA), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, serves the four southeast Minneapolis neighborhoods of Keewaydin, Minnehaha, Morris Park, and Wenonah. One of 70+ such organizations throughout the City, we trace our beginnings back to the mid-1980s, NENA was incorporated in 1997 with the goals of promoting neighborhood improvement and revitalization and encouraging citizen participation in civic affairs.

NENA invests in neighborhood improvements through microgrants, builds connections and offers volunteer opportunities through events like our Community Cleanups, Food Truck Rallies, and Kickball Tournaments, facilitates meetings to encourage citizen participation through connections to our elected officials and other local leaders, advocates for the interests of the Nokomis East neighborhood, and much more!
