Collective Impact Lincoln

An intensive, multi-year partnership bringing vitality to Lincoln neighborhoods.

Hi, neighbor.

Collective Impact Lincoln creates lasting, meaningful, resident-led investment and positive change in Lincoln’s core neighborhoods. Through canvassing, community events, and our Community Builder Workshops, we help neighbors examine their communities’ natural strengths and identify new ways to improve.

Collective Impact Lincoln is a partnership between Civic NebraskaNebraska Appleseed and the South of Downtown Community Development Organization made possible by Woods Charitable Fund’s 2017 Breakthrough Initiative Grant. We focus on Belmont, Clinton, Everett, Hartley, Near South, and University Place neighborhoods.

In late 2018 and early 2019, Collective Impact Lincoln partnered with storyteller Gabriella Parsons to bring narratives in our six focus neighborhoods to life. Through a series of portraits and short films, Stories of Impact explores neighborhoods and gives voice to their residents, concerns, ideas, and day-to-day lives.
