What We Do


South of Downtown works to expand the participation of a wide range of community stakeholders to improve safety, housing and neighborhood infrastructure. South of Downtown Community Development Organization will focus efforts on neighborhood services; healthy and affordable housing; arts and culture; equitable opportunities in education; and job skills and workforce development for residents living in the Everett and Near South neighborhoods.

Collective Impact Lincoln

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 Nebraska, Nebraska 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.
