Our church has partnered with InCommon for many years now. They have consistently connected us to the poor, homeless, and marginalized as our friends and fellow neighbors. No longer are we a church that wants to patronize the poor; we see them as our friends. To me, this is the hallmark of InCommon - building healthy friendships.

There have been many church members who have told me how awkaward they felt to simply sit down and share a meal, a story, a game, and some of life with a friend in poverty. They couldn't hide behind a serving line, passing out food. Each time I hear the story, I smile because I know InCommon is accomplishing their goal.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways: my own life through friendships with the leaders of InCommon, in our church through the small groups that partner with InCommon, in my neighborhood, and more.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help other buy into the mission - even though friendships are more difficult, they are also way more effective.

Neighbors United Community Meal
With at least one in four local residents living below the poverty threshold, the offering of a free weekly meal has begun to alleviate the strain on many of our neighbors working multiple jobs just to cover the necessities.

In addition to affronting poverty, the Community Meals initiative aims to develop relationships among Park Avenue neighbors. With the involvement of over twelve churches and organizations and over 100 volunteers, the Community Meals initiative is naturally building relational bridges.

Every Saturday 11:30-1:00pm
First Baptist Church, 421 Park Avenue
To volunteer contact: info@inCOMMONcd.org

CommonTable Meal
CommonTable exists to provide an entry point around a shared table for the development of healthy relationships which span the lines of socioeconomic diversity.

Each Monday night at 5:30pm a meal is provided by a volunteer or church group, either on a one-time or rotating schedule. Around 75-100 friends and community members enjoy the meal together and build relationships, with the goal of these friendships leading toward our CommonLife ministry.

We’d love for you (or your group of friends) to join us in this opportunity to gain new relationships and break down the dichotomy of “giver” and “receiver.” There are several ways to get involved, for more information contact us!

Every Monday 5:30-7:30pm
inCOMMON, 1258 S 13th Street

The Listening Project
“Pioneered by Rural Southern Voice for Peace, the Listening Project is a unique approach to improving vulnerable neighborhoods. Rather than starting with the solutions of experts, inCOMMON turns to the people.”
- Metro Neighborhood News

Ever wondered what the people in your neighborhood think? The best way to foster and develop community is to listen!


CommonLife (mentors)
CommonLife trains, equips, and supports individuals and small groups in their companionship of an individual or family throughout and beyond their transition from poverty. CommonLife serves four main populations: homeless/near homeless, refugee, post-incarcerated, and at-risk youth.

The Listening Project inocorporates active, compassionate listening into one-on-one ‘listening sessions.’ These provide folks who may rarely have an opportunity to communicate. Our neighborhoods include Park East, Ford Birthsite, Columbus Park, Leavenworth, and Field Club. We are interested in people’s stories, ideas, and dreams.

Interested in joining? The first step is attending an Active Listening Training at inCOMMON. The next step is using your listening skills everyday.
