Good in the 'Hood

A nonprofit organization

At Good in the 'Hood, we are all about community. Yet in the next 6 weeks children will go without gifts because their families just can't make ends meet. You can provide a child with a gift for just $50 (we provide each child with 2 gifts or 2 $25 gift cards), and we will ensure that your gift is delivered directly to those in the greatest need. Will you help us reach 750 MN families this season? Each gift brings help and inspires hope. 

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.

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 the impact of the pandemic, inflation, and homelessness in our local communities.

Nearly 100% of those we serve are low-income households. This includes children, seniors, families, students, immigrants/refugees, individuals experiencing homelessness, and those with disabilities.

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. Additionally, we continue to meet the needs of the hungry and hurting through our other core programs:

•    Holiday Help, serving up to 750 families with children in need and offering a holiday for those who are experiencing homelessness

•    Shoe Away Hunger, providing essential shoes and footwear to those in schools, shelters, and all those in need.  

•    SoleCare for Souls, offering medical foot care for those experiencing homelessness or for those unable to access affordable medical foot care

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!
