To create unity and prosperity throughout Lincoln while honoring our African American heritage.
Malone programs and services are designed to help achieve our mission to eliminate multigenerational poverty in Lincoln.
Malone was founded in 1955 through a reorganization of the Lincoln Urban league. The league founders were determined to improve social and economic conditions and increase understanding between all races.
For the last 66 years Malone has served neighboring families, youth, and the Lincoln community with inclusive, social, cultural, educational, employment and welfare services. With our mission to end-multi-generational poverty and our vision to create unity and prosperity in Lincoln, we are constantly re-evaluating our programs to ensure the current needs of the community are being met.
