EnvistaCares Challenge Highlights SENT Topeka
Envista Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce that they will highlight SENT Topeka through the EnvistaCares Challenge during the month of July.
SENT Topeka is a community development non-profit that empowers individuals and transforms neighborhoods in Shawnee County. They value the worth of every person and strive to provide necessary resources for everyone to thrive.
SENT Topeka’s mission is built upon three key strategies:
- Loving Relationships - Walking alongside their neighbors, fostering trust and cooperation. Developing authentic connections between residents, local organizations, and churches to build resilient communities and strengthen social capital.
- Life-giving Resources - Through a strengths-based approach, they identify and utilize key resources, bridging gaps and empowering individuals to reach their full potential.
- Life-changing Experiences – Expanding perspectives, encouraging big dreams, and inspiring individuals to act differently for better results. From unique housing projects to extraordinary events, they demonstrate that the extraordinary is within reach.
“The impact that SENT Topeka is making in small neighborhoods in our community, when supported, has the opportunity to create a ripple effect throughout Shawnee County. We’re excited that the EnvistaCares Challenge can come along side SENT Topeka to honor the individual and help people thrive,” said Erika McNeill, engagement coordinator for Envista.
“Our vision is the holistic transformation of neighborhoods in Shawnee County. By supporting SENT Topeka through the EnvistaCares Challenge, the community will be able to help our education pillar provide a quality K-12 seat for every child in our neighborhood, it will assist us in making mental and behavioral health both available and accessible, and will support our proactive approach to health, ensuring families have access to healthy food options through our local market. Join us in our mission to transform neighborhoods; together, we can change the narrative of so many neighborhoods that have been written off,” said Johnathan Sublet, interim executive director and founder of SENT Topeka.
