Celebrating Our First 20 Years
Banyan's work 'officially' began in 1998
It started with a block club, then a Kids Club, and finally in 1998 Banyan Community was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
What began as an idea when Tim and Joani Essenburg moved to the Phillips neighborhood in 1990, is now 20 years of developing youth, strengthening families, and creating community. Join in celebration throughout 2018.
We will be celebrating the past and what the future holds for Banyan Community at our events, in your stories, and with photos on Facebook.
The core belief that lasting community change is most successful when it comes from residents of the community through gifts, leadership, and vision still guides our work today.
Thank you for your gifts, leadership, and vision over time and into the future. You are an important part of this celebration!
