Community Engagement


Godman Guild works to connect residents of the Weinland Park neighborhood and the Greater Columbus area to Guild programming, community resources, and each other. Through community outreach efforts, those in need of education and employment opportunities become aware of how to access our services. Workshops are offered in topics such as, gardening, housing rights, advocacy and community resources.

Godman Guild also promotes civic engagement by encouraging participation in neighborhood civic associations and voter registration. Partnering with other agencies is a strong component of building connectivity for residents so that we can collectively create a vibrant community of choice.
