What We Do


Every neighborhood in Greater Cincinnati is a unique tapestry—a complex system of interconnected, moving parts. That is precisely why no single solution can ever hope to address all of a struggling neighborhood’s needs.

We invest in overlapping program areas that reach into every corner of community life. Our approach is comprehensive, effective, and—most importantly—rooted in what neighbors want for themselves, their families, and the places they call home.

Economic Development

Economic development initiatives boost the health of neighborhoods by investing in the physical and social assets of a community.
