Organization Information

Mission Statement

inCOMMON Community Development unites and strengthens vulnerable neighborhoods by listening, building relationships and empowering residents.

Description

Neighborhoods - as the context of where life is lived - provide an extraordinary opportunity to alleviate poverty at a "cause" or "root" level. If a neighborhood is strong and thriving, it’s more likely neighborhood residents will enjoy these same traits in both their personal and community life. Unfortunately many neighborhoods face great challenges, poverty, crime, lack of affordable housing...etc.

As a result of living in such environments, residents and families are denied many basic opportunities for life wellbeing and success. The work of strengthening vulnerable neighborhoods, then, provides our community the strategic window needed to stop poverty before it even starts.

In response to this opportunity, inCOMMON Community Development unites and strengthens vulnerable neighborhoods. Through a variety of community-based initiatives, residents are finding ways to rebuild their neighborhoods together, as well as setting a Community new course away from poverty and toward sustainable futures for themselves and their families.

They do really important work on strengthening the community here. Also, the people are really nice and the facilities are a pleasant place to spend time.

inCommon Community Development and Neighbors United provide a vital ministry in the Park Avenue and Midtown Omaha areas. The neighborhood meals program on Saturdays provides several hundred meals and community building to a neighborhood where community is often difficult to find, and where people sometimes do not know where their next meal is coming from.
