Common Good Community Development Corporation
Mission: Common Good exists to advance holistic community development in North Lexington through leadership development, education, recreation and spiritual formation.
Description: Common Good is a faith-based nonprofit that focuses on Christ-centered programming for children, youth, and families in under-resourced neighborhoods in North Lexington. Our vision is for our community to live into its God-given potential evidenced by thriving children, strong families, and flourishing neighborhoods. We desire that community members be reconciled to God and to each other.
History: Common Good Community Development Corporation was born out of grass roots service among youth and families in the North Lexington area. After five years of working with youth from the Castlewood, N. Limestone, and East End neighborhoods, John and Laura Gallaher launched Common Good’s after-school program in January of 2012. It serves kindergarten-12th grades and is open from 2:30-6:00pm Monday-Thursday during the school year.
