Kara Kennedy; A True Friend of N Street Village

Our community is grateful to Kara for her support of N Street Village. Kara had a noticeable impact in our community through her devout service. She led two very popular classes — “Mystery Solvers” and an art class –assisted the in-kind donation office, served meals, and helped sponsor our inaugural art show last April.

Over the last week our community has been sharing their memories of Kara and reflecting on her service in our community.  Visit our blog to read more.


“The first thought that comes to mind about Kara is her patience. Some of the women in Kara and Vicki’s art class needed carefully guided explanations to carry out their projects. Kara repeated the instructions, as many times as requested, never showing any sense of frustration, she was patient and gentle through and through. Kara also took the time to get to know the women here. She made sure to learn our names and was always kind. The women knew her as Kara, not Kara Kennedy. Kara only wanted to be known for what she could do and not necessarily what her name implied about her” – Barbara, N Street Village Resident
