Get Involved!

As the Volunteer Coordinator it was amazing to see 600 volunteers come together for a common goal. Registry Week allowed friendships to be formed between surveying teams and community members, whether housed or unhoused. It was a beautiful thing to witness and I am pleased to be involved. -Volunteer Coordinator

Common Ground has affected me in so many great ways. Primarily, the team I am a part of with people who care so tremendously. The affects of the team are displayed in the park; people are progressing and being loved consistently. I absolutely believe in what we are doing! -Volunteer
