We envision a day when all people have access to a place they can call their own. We’re so thankful for the progress made and the 13,000 individuals we already serve in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa. But we’ve got more work to do such as expanding our affordable housing into Rapid City, SD. And the honest truth is, every dollar, gesture, and helping hand makes a difference. Keep reading to see all the ways you can get involved and help individuals and families find affordable housing solutions– and ultimately, help entire communities thrive.
No, really. Every amount donated goes directly to help the communities we serve, both through services that support Commonbond residents, and through property development and management that helps facilitate safe, stable, and affordable housing solutions. Through corporate, individual, and legacy gifts, there are many ways to support CommonBond. We know there are many places to donate to, so we deeply appreciate it when you add us to your charitable portfolio.
Every moment matters. And CommonBond volunteers, well, they are like none other. We have opportunities for you to use your skills in language and math to be a study buddy, a mentor for kids in their formative years, and much more. Whether you have five hours a week or one hour a month to give, we’d love to have you and our residents would, too.
Times, they are changing! And the challenges facing nonprofits and organizations like CommonBond are difficult in the new normal. How we regain traction: In addition to giving your time and financial contributions, we need people to send letters, talk to their elected officials, and have conversations with their peer groups. The forces of poverty are strong, but together we are stronger. The more we can educate the general public on the poverty and homelessness crisis, the more we can work toward affordable housing solutions.
