Who We Serve

Common Ground prioritizes individuals who historically were perceived as unreachable and “unhouseable”: those who have lived on the streets for years, who have the most debilitating mental and physical health conditions, and/or who have suffered significant adversity (childhood abuse or neglect, long-term foster care placement, traumatic military combat) that contributed to their homelessness. Despite being the primary consumers of substantial public resources, these special needs groups have been consistently marginalized or ignored by conventional outreach, shelter, and housing systems.
