Common Ground

Welcome to Common Ground Community Building. We are a community service agency dedicated to helping neighbors in the Jefferson City area reach their full potential. What started as a small ministry of churches in downtown Jefferson City has grown into a vital community partner offering temporary financial assistance, access to healthy food through a Community Garden and a partnership with Capitol City Farmer’s Market, housing support through our Families Forward program, and education opportunities for learning computer or fiber arts skills.

Common Ground’s mission is to provide an innovative and relationship-focused approach to addressing the needs of clients in poverty.  Through the development of a strong network of community-based partners and services, Common Ground strives to help individuals and families achieve sustainable freedom from poverty.
