What We Do

Individual Development

inCOMMON partners with neighbors to increase employment success and economic self-sufficiency through adult education, language classes, job readiness classes, and financial workshops.

Relationship Development

To increase success beyond the classroom, inCOMMON ensures neighbors have the relational support they need as they work toward life and employment goals. inCOMMON also fosters relationships between neighbors through block parties, community meals, and cultural celebrations.

Leadership Development

Once relationships of trust are formed, we continue working with neighbors of all ages to identify and foster leadership skills through assessments, surveys, coaching, and opportunities to lead programs and committees in the neighborhood. This helps ensure sustainability of community development long after inCOMMON’s work is complete.

Neighborhood Development

As neighbors succeed and grow in each of these three areas, they are also equipped to lead neighborhood change. Neighbors are empowered to lead the development of their community – not only strengthening their neighborhood for themselves, but for future generations.
