People are at the heart of our mission to create stable homes, strong futures, and vibrant communities. Here are stories from CommonBond residents that demonstrate how our work comes to life and how we partner with residents to create bright futures.
An Unexpected Friendship
Last summer, CommonBond began renovating a group of housing communities in Minneapolis. Residents were able to remain in their homes during the renovations. For some, the construction was merely an annoyance, but for one family in particular, the noise and unfamiliar faces had the potential to completely disrupt their world. Jordan Ewart enjoys music, roller skating, and shopping. He also has a severe form of autism that renders him nonverbal. Any change in schedule is a major challenge for him and his mother, Jila. Thanks to the Frerichs Construction foreman and team, Jordan and Jila made it through the renovations comfortably -- and with a new friend by their side.
