In 2019, inCOMMON extend its mission into Walnut Hill. This historic, North Omaha area possesses a wide array of assets, but as with many disinvested neighborhoods, also faces significant challenges. Today, over one in four residents lives in poverty.
Building upon our decade of learning in Park Avenue, work in Walnut Hill has begun. We are listening to and developing relationships with residents, assessing their strengths, and learning about their dreams for the future. Future plans include neighborhood planning, home ownership support, and playground and community center development.
