The development work toward a flourishing community involves both people and places, both relationships and locations. Link is committed to working with neighbors so that life by life, block by block, we can create beauty, strength, and be the kind of community in which everyone has opportunities to grow and thrive.
Christmas in Walnut is an annual event in the neighborhood. Watch this 3 minute video that gives you a great picture of Christian community development work in Walnut Neighborhood.
Youth empowerment is a central component of Link CCD. Nurturing the needs of a whole young person (spiritual, physical, emotional, intellectual), building bridges across divides in our community, and introducing relationships and skills to encourage lives of service, employment, faith, and leadership among youth are central to Link CCD.
Youth Art Team and Try Pie are two youth development partners steeped in CCD principles. We incubated both programs out of the Link core, have grown well beyond the neighborhood, and are taking flight into their own nonprofit status in the community. We believe in the strength of connecting relationships, gifts, and learning, and so we look forward to continued partnership with these amazing friends! Learn more by clicking on their logos.
