Dayton At Work and Play: Carmin Gooden

I have been working to get photos from each of Dayton’s 66 neighborhoods for a show that opens April 2 at K12 Gallery and TEJAS (341 South Jefferson). The last neighborhood on my list was Mount Vernon. There I met Carmen Gooden, co-founder of The Linda Vista, Inc. (1011 Linda Vista Avenue).

This has been a difficult time for The Linda Vista as our country and community attempt to return to normal many nonprofits like Linda Vista have experienced a decrease in funding. During this most difficult time, we have served 25 women and children and have reunited families.

During Covid 19 we provided most of our services 1:1 to ensure the safety of our families and this includes weekly therapy sessions.

Thank you in advance for your support.
