The Sun Prairie Neighborhood Navigators program is a grassroots program for neighbors to engage and help their fellow neighbors. The role of Neighborhood Navigators is twofold. The Navigators are directly connected to several community resource agencies and are ready to assist neighbors with making connections to these resources. Secondly, the Navigators are working to engage their neighbors in conversations about the community and its resources. By acting as a connector to and from community agencies, it is the hope of the Navigator program to make all residents feel supported and that their voices heard.
Your Neighborhood Navigators are here to provide information/resource linkage on: Food/Meal Programs Clothing Rent Assistance/Housing Transportation Assistance Early Childhood Education Healthcare Employment Recreation Services Community Education Voting/Voter Registration City Council, Board & Commission Meetings Home Visiting Services ...and more!
The Navigators in conjunction with Rolling Prairie Apartments, Dave Cerqua and Kelly Thompson from Kontext Architects were able to resurface and paint the Rolling Prairie Basketball Court that has become a neighborhood venue for kids of all ages to come enjoy and play.
The Neighborhood Navigator Program provided many events in 2019 and will continue to build relationships with our partners to provide a connection with resources. We look forward to providing an upcoming Easter event with Westside Elementary and the YMCA as partners along with many others in April. We will be providing more information soon!
