Building Better Neighborhoods – One person, one family at a time.

Our Mission: To promote strong families and strong communities in Columbus, Ohio


Columbus’ inner-city neighborhoods are under-resourced and over-burdened.

Families living in these communities face higher rates of unemployment, lower graduation rates and limited opportunities. The stressors caused by poverty can make progress seem impossible, inhibiting individuals from reaching their full potential.


Focus Areas


  • Educational Achievement
  • Economic Development
  • Health & Wellness

To positively impact our community, we must create access and opportunities that drive the growth and future of its people.


Godman Guild builds pathways out of poverty for individuals of all ages. By focusing our work across generations and in the inner-city neighborhoods of Columbus, we can move families forward and create a stronger community for all of us.
