JFF office's goal is to strengthen community-based services, help families address their basic needs, and maintain healthy neighborhoods and communities on Madison’s southwest side. EPNC will serve as a dynamic resource tool for the Madison neighborhood situated on Morraine View Drive.

Elver Park and Theresa Terrace Neighborhood Centers are happy to partner with the Madison Police Department and Common Wealth Development in the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation planning grant. We appreciate all of the friends, neighbors and organizations working to build community in Madison's southwest neighborhoods. 


Elver Park Neighborhood Center was lucky enough to participate in the United Way: Days of Caring, an annual volunteer event that kicks off the United Way campaign and helps plant the seeds of volunteerism in our community. We want to thank the volunteers from the Group Health Cooperative for painting our gym. It has truly transformed the space into a fun place for kids to get active. To view some pictures from this event, visit the photo gallery here. 


The EPNC kitchen remodel is complete and looks great! Thank you to all who donated to this project. Check out this timelapse video. A special thank you to Legacy Builders Group for their generous donation and their excellent work!

EPNC is honored to receive a $25,000 grant from the Madison Community Foundation for the renovation of its’ kitchen.  The Elver Park Neighborhood Center runs programs for low-income, at risk youth. The kitchen renovation will allow us to expand our services as a community gathering space and better serve our participants. The kitchen is used for cooking classes and serving meals to children and teens in our programs.

EPNC is honored to be awarded an additional $10,000 grant from the Evjue Foundation to be put toward our kitchen renovation project. The Evjue Foundation is the charitable arm of The Capital Times newspaper. It was established in 1970 and since then has contributed $53 million to organizations working to improve the quality of life in Madison and Dane County.  We greatly appreciate the foundation supporting our work to improve the lives of families in the Elver Park neighborhood.
