Community Matters - Cincinnati
Mission: To create a thriving and more just community by removing barriers to opportunity.
Vision: A city where all people hold the power to create opportunity.
We believe that community matters.
Our community connects us and gives us our sense of place. Where we live often determines our path in life as it is how we access opportunity and support. Building community means being a part of something bigger than oneself and creating space for people, families, and a local economy to thrive.
Founded in 2014, Community Matters has deep roots in the Lower Price Hill community, developed from the over forty years of work by its sister organization, Education Matters. Community Matters was created from the will of the Lower Price Hill community to address the overwhelming disparity in access to opportunities for our residents.
