Good in the 'Hood

A nonprofit organization

Good in the ‘Hood is dedicated to changing lives together with simple acts of kindness. Although our service opportunities are not solely limited to the urban community, we do have a purposeful inner-city affinity and a commitment to serve those with the most need.

We believe that goodness and kindness are inspirational, change-agent qualities and it is our firm conviction that urban renewal can begin to take place when a focused and contagious momentum of genuine kindness is made manifest. Our desire is to inspire individuals, families, and entire neighborhoods to take responsibility and ownership for the growth, improvement, and well-being of their personal lives and community. Through partnerships and kindness-based initiatives, we believe the physical, emotional, and spiritual climate of an entire community can be changed for good.

To initiate and sustain the greatest good, we offer the community the following 3-point approach:

PROVISION: Offering essential resources including groceries, hot meals, holiday support, medical foot care, and footwear, backpacks, winter clothing, wellness services, referrals, and more.

PARTICIPATION: Engaging the community with user-friendly volunteer experiences and internships that promote intentional kindness, healthy community engagement, service-learning, and social responsibility.

PARTNERSHIPS: Collaborating with action-minded communities to plan, work, and inspire intentional kindness in others that helps to foster neighborhood decency and a better local community.

Since our inception in 2003, we have continued to expand our efforts to provide essential resources for the economically disadvantaged communities and for all those who have been marginalized by difficult circumstances.  This is even more critical now as individuals and families continue to be impacted by COVID-19 and recent riots in our local communities.

Our food programs and support services, holiday help outreaches, medical foot care, and shoe programs continue to grow and offer much-needed relief for over 7,500 people in need every month. 

None of this would be possible without the kind and generous support of donors like you. 

Thank you for your kind consideration of support. We are better together!
