MaiaCo believes Gary’s economic progress must be measured by the positive impact it has on Gary residents. For this reason, MaiaCo established a nonprofit sister organization, MaiaCommunity Foundation, to help connect Gary residents to opportunities created by MaiaCo’s work with the Gary Redevelopment Commission (GRC).
The goal is to engage Gary residents in building solutions for their community that can help people overcome existing barriers to future opportunities, including access to transportation, quality childcare, and job training.
MaiaCommunity is in the early phases of planning its role in Gary. This innovative, inspired idea will require continued conversations with community leaders and residents to chart its most responsive course of action. We recognize that this is a long-term project and are committed to sustaining and growing MaiaCommunity as long as it can serve the public good.
