Review for inCOMMON Community Development, Omaha, NE, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

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.

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.

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.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & Serve on Advisory Council; help with meals.
