Fellowship for the Common Good

Allegany Franciscan Ministries believes in the power of individuals to make a difference in the places where they live – to drive change and foster good in ways that create healthier, safer and more connected communities. For this reason, we designed the Fellowship for the Common Good, a 12-month resident leadership development program, to build community capacity and sustainability through enhanced community-based leadership in all three Common Good Initiative Communities: Overtown, Wimauma, and Lincoln Park. The Fellowship for the Common Good is one part of an overall plan designed to mobilize communities towards better health and wellness through community engagement, a long-term commitment to resources and increased collaboration among residents and stakeholders.
