inCOMMON is a unique nonprofit that alleviates poverty at a “root” level by uniting and strengthening vulnerable neighborhoods. We do this by fostering relationships of belonging, equipping and supporting residents for success, and empowering neighbor-driven change.

Description:
inCOMMON Community Development (“inCOMMON”) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that alleviates poverty at a root level by uniting and strengthening vulnerable neighborhoods. Research shows that neighborhoods, as the context of where life is lived, provide an extraordinary opportunity to alleviate poverty at a cause or root level (Datcher, 1982; Cutler & Glaeser, 1997; Page & Solon, 1997; Katz et al., 2001). If a neighborhood is strong and thriving, residents are more likely to enjoy these same traits in their personal and community life. Unfortunately, many neighborhoods face great challenges, such as poverty, crime, and a lack of affordable housing.
As a result of living in such challenging environments, residents and families are denied basic opportunities for wellbeing and success. Strengthening vulnerable neighborhoods provides communities with the strategic window to stop poverty before it starts. inCOMMON’s aim is to actively engage, equip, and empower residents, who in turn build strong, safe, and vibrant neighborhoods for themselves and for future generations who would otherwise grow up under the detrimental conditions of poverty.
