We’re proud to call the Linden Community HOME!
As the Community and Economic Development Arm of New Salem Church, the Community of Caring Development Foundation (The Foundation) has planted “seeds of hope” in Linden for more than two decades – long enough to witness what can be accomplished when neighbors join together to create a connected community.
Through The Foundation, New Salem Church has been and continues to be at the forefront of community revitalization initiatives throughout the northeast quadrant of Columbus, Ohio, including an expanding role as convener and thought-leader in the revitalization of Linden.
With our beyond the walls platform, The Foundation brings a diverse offering of programs in the areas of community wealth building, education, housing, health & wellness, and a real estate development advisory project portfolio in access of $100 million dollars. Our focus and impact areas are aligned with the City of Columbus’ One Linden Plan’s Top 10 Big Ideas.
