A vibrant community is built upon the dedication and passion of its advocates, and Kalamazoo Eastside Neighborhood Association (KENA) stands tall as a shining example. As we celebrate the ribbon cutting of KENA's latest venture, ELITE COMPANIES is humbled and honored to partner with this remarkable community advocate. Together, with Inform Architecture, LISC Kalamazoo, the City of Kalamazoo, and Room 35, we embark on a journey that promises to bring positive transformation and endless possibilities to the Eastside of Kalamazoo.

KENA has long been at the forefront of promoting the Eastside neighborhood's vitality and well-being. Their unwavering commitment to fostering a strong sense of community, advocating for equitable opportunities, and enhancing the quality of life for its residents is truly inspiring. ELITE COMPANIES recognizes the profound impact that community advocates like KENA can have on creating positive change, and we are grateful for the opportunity to join forces with such an extraordinary organization.

ELITE COMPANIES understands that partnerships built on shared values and a genuine commitment to community empowerment are the ones that create lasting impact. We are humbled to collaborate with KENA, whose deep-rooted connection with the Eastside community ensures that the project is driven by their needs and aspirations. KENA’s vision was to have a contracting base structured with community contractors, minority-owned, and the opportunity to ensure the administrative tasks of construction management were taught.  Working together this vision became reality, from groundbreaking, through the ribbon-cutting, the collaboration was a success! 

ELITE COMPANIES is excited to partner with Kalamazoo Eastside Neighborhood Association (KENA) as we celebrate the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Together, we embark on a journey that will bring forth positive transformation and endless possibilities for the Eastside of Kalamazoo. The commitment and dedication of KENA as a community advocate inspire us, and we are privileged to work alongside them. As the ribbon is cut and the project takes flight, we are filled with optimism for the future. Together, KENA and ELITE COMPANIES will create a brighter, stronger, and more vibrant community for all.
