LINC NW exists as a creative hub for collaboration, development, action, and reflection. We believe that when communities work together they are stronger. Our work to orchestrate togetherness is full of joy because we are opportunity minded!

We Value:

  • Youth Development
  • Social Entrepreneurship
  • Inter-generational Engagement
  • Mentoring
  • Networking


We believe that business, government, non-profit agencies, and faith/wisdom communities each play a distinct and interdependent role in a vital community.

Valuing the success of others means that we get to be collaborative and not competitive! It is in the joy of these relationships that we see lives being transformed, families being strengthened, and cities becoming communities!
