BORN BOLD

A group of community churches, organizations, and generous individuals launched CityLink with a $12M investment to help our neighbors advance their lives out of poverty through holistic care. 

CityLink is a client-centered approach, built on the strength of our city’s and nation’s best practices. Our mission is to show God’s love to those in need by providing an integrated path to holistic life change.

CONTINUED GROWTH

God has blessed our journey with new partners and more clients engaging with us every year. 

 

With experience, we have gained insights on how to better serve our clients. 

WHO WE SERVE

Poverty affects all corners of our community but is concentrated in the urban core, disproportionately affecting people of color.


Our clients come to us from neighborhoods across Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, all searching for a path forward for themselves and their families.

CONTINUOUS 

IMPROVEMENT

Being privately funded gives CityLink the freedom to move fast and continuously improve. As we measure outcomes, we adjust offered services, improve the way programs are run, and optimize the order of services for clients to attain and sustain their goals.

POISED TO SCALE

CityLink is in a strong financial position, has a mature operating model, and has the capacity to serve more clients more effectively through our collaboration. 

We are now preparing to broaden the reach and impact by expanding our campus.

RE-IMAGINE HOPE FOR OUR COMMUNITY 

Amidst our current crisis, we choose not to look inward for self-preservation but to look outward for new opportunities to better serve our clients and community.
