COVID-19: Times are tough, but our communities are tougher. Learn more about how you and your neighbors can play a part in tackling community challenges.

Cincinnati is full of energy—there's so much happening in the world of positive civic change, it's hard not to be excited! But part of what makes Cincinnati so special to us is its long history of neighbors working together to get good done. It's pretty clear that Cincinnatians have no shortage of great ideas, and are ready to make them happen. 

And when neighbors want to roll up their sleeves to get good done and make Cincinnati even more awesome, ioby is there to lend a hand. Do you live in Cincinnati?
