In 2015, a group of friends joined together to organize a free summer lunch program in Clear Lake, Iowa. As the group began brainstorming and collaborating with others, they realized their dreams for the flourishing of the community extended beyond just the lunch program. In April 2016, Share Life was incorporated as a non-profit in the State of Iowa.
The mission of Share Life is to build community, expand and coordinate community resources, and establish long-term collaborative projects to promote the thriving of Clear Lake children and families.
These projects address the needs of vulnerable community members through services and strengths-based approaches like mentoring, advocacy, outreach and active inclusion in community life.
