Our mission is to show God’s love to those in need by providing an integrated, holistic path to life change
CityLink is Client-Centered, Faith-Based, and Outcome-Driven.
CityLink is built on the simple but radical concept that services should be centered around clients. We’ve harnessed the power of our city’s incredible resources through an innovative collaboration on a single campus where our clients find access to not only support, but lasting relationships and a holistic path to their full potential.
CityLink gathers services in one building.
CityLink collaborates with partners to combine and sequence multiple services which address various aspects of client lives in one, seamless, experience.
Our why drives our what
Our community launched and supports CityLink because we believe that every neighbor is created in the image of God with immeasurable worth. We believe that circumstances, systems, and choices can inhibit us from reaching their full potential. We believe in truth, grace, accountability and empathy. We believe our community will only reach it’s full potential when all neighbors have an opportunity to reach theirs.
We will constantly explore, evaluate, and adjust to support the changing needs of our community and clients.
We will foster an environment where the lives our clients service providers and volunteers will be profoundly changed by knowing others and being known.
We will monitor and report on our results to continually improve our services and break the cycle of poverty.
We will seek God’s guidance in all that we do. We will help clients experience God’s love in practical ways through the work of programs, partners, staff and volunteers
We will hold ourselves and our partners accountable to the highest level of care, programs and facilities.
Cincinnati has a massive and persistent challenge with poverty.
Poverty leaves no corner of our city untouched – affecting the lives of individuals, families, children, our businesses and our community as a whole. The challenge is complex and requires new ways of thinking and approaches
