Let's build community resilience together!

SHEI Executive Director,

Carol Conforti-Adams, works closely with KCN as a project coordinator.

She is able to help spread resiliency and wellness resources across multiple communities by networking through SHEI and

KCN projects and programs.


Kearsarge Community Network (KCN) was developed with support from a UNH Extension initiative. Our goal is to bring together local partners from nonprofit organizations, civic groups, towns, schools, and businesses in the Kearsarge area. We collaborate on activities, programs, and events that cultivate resiliency and wellness skills. KCN meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month.

For the last two years, KCN has brought together our local partners from nonprofit organizations, civic groups, towns, schools, and businesses in the area, to collaborate on activities, programs, and events that cultivate resilience and wellness skills.

KCN Goals in 2023 are to create opportunities for:

  • Community gatherings to reduce isolation, anxiety, and stress

  • Food access, healthy nutrition, and agricultural self-sufficiency

  • Exploring mentorship programs in our communities

  • Ongoing free UNH trainings for all community members

The KCN meetings have been successful in bringing key stakeholders together to build working partnerships. KCN covers Sunapee, Andover, and the seven towns in the Kearsarge Regional School District.
