The Goshen Guide is a local wikipedia, resource guide, and media platform – all rolled into one. It’s designed to help connect the dots in our community by mapping the ideas, associations, and places we hold in common. Our goal is to make the stories and relationships that shape Goshen’s identity more visible.
By curating and cataloging information from other sources, we hope to make it more accessible now and in the future. The Guide features Interactive original articles that highlight existing content, and community members can use it as a platform to preserve and share new work with a broader audience.
As a resource guide (including directories, calendars, guides, and maps) it helps people explore their community in new ways or find information about specific themes or issues.

The Goshen Guide is a product of the Community Resilience Guild, a Goshen-based not-for-profit dedicated to increasing local capacity to respond healthily to change. We believe that the systemic issues challenging our society (such as racism, poverty, and climate change) are connected through complex patterns of social and institutional relationships. Our collective challenge is to weave these relationships into sustainable, integrated, and vibrant systems that nurture the common good.
