What We Do
inCOMMON BELIEVES no one should have to face a lifetime of poverty simply because of the zip code they were born into.
Children who grow up in poor neighborhoods are far more likely to become adults living in poverty. These vulnerable neighborhoods lack the basic building blocks young people need to succeed later in life such as safe streets and play spaces, social support networks, high performing schools, affordable housing, and employment opportunities.
OUR MISSION is to alleviate poverty at a root level by uniting and strengthening vulnerable neighborhoods. inCOMMON partners with neighbors to strengthen vulnerable neighborhoods so that every child has the chance to grow up in a safe, thriving, and opportunity-rich environment.
