Common Ground needs your support immediately to continue critical relief and
recovery work in New Orleans and the city’s surrounding areas.
The City of New Orleans has iniatiated a “Good Neighbor” Program.
Thousands of residents many of whom are elderly and disabled–have had their homes repossed by the City or face this action: , if their properties are not gutted, mold abated, and boarded up. Instead of providing the needed resources to those who need assistance, the local government is referring residents to non-profit organizations like Common Ground.
Common Ground’s mission is to provide short term relief for victims of hurricane disasters in the gulf coast region, and long term support in rebuilding the communities affected in the New Orleans area.
Common Ground is a community-initiated volunteer organization with over 500 volunteers who are offering assistance, mutual aid and support. The work gives hope to communities by working with them, providing for their immediate needs and emphasizes people working together to rebuild their lives in sustainable ways.
