About Good In The 'Hood
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 to inspire individuals, families and entire neighborhoods to take responsibility and ownership for growth, improvement and well-being of their personal lives and community. Through partnership 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 effective support for the urban poor and those that have been marginalized by difficult circumstances. Our youth mentoring, internships and adult advocacy programs continue to grow and offer effective support for those desiring to move forward in life. In order to best accomplish this objective we place an emphasis on establishing healthy partnerships. With this in mind, we collaborate with a number of difference-making organizations. Each month, with the help of these dedicated partners, we provide groceries, meals, food for hungry college students and practical resources for over 3,000 individuals. In addition, we make available regular volunteer opportunities for a variety of large groups and more than 200 individuals.
Thank you for taking the time to visiting our site and thank you for sharing in our mission of inspiring intentional kindness.
