ANNUAL REPORT

our mission

inCOMMON alleviates poverty at a “root” level by uniting and strengthening vulnerable neighborhoods.

Because we believe the greatest strength of any neighborhood is the residents who call these places home, we’re committed to transforming neighborhoods through neighbors themselves.

We do this by building on neighbors’ strengths and empowering neighbors to use these strengths to lead neighborhood change.
