If it’s a crisis to you, we feel it, too.
In moments of crisis, we all need a safe space where we can seek comfort and guidance. Where we can feel heard and validated. Where we’ll be met with compassion, not judgment. And that’s where Common Ground comes in. Whether you’re dealing with a mental health emergency, need counseling or emergency shelter, or just need someone to talk to, we offer confidential crisis support, 24/7.
Read on to learn more about Common Ground, the organization that’s been nationally recognized as one of the most comprehensive crisis service agencies in the country.
Our vision for the future
Our long-term goal is that our efforts continue to make a positive impact on people’s lives and throughout their communities, which will lead more people to feel safe asking for help. As a result, demand for our services will continue to grow, thus driving the further growth of Common Ground.
Helping people in crisis 24/7 is at the heart of everything we do by offering hope, healing and recovery. Our caring and dedicated team meets people wherever they are: in person, call, text, chat or virtually. We listen, assist and advocate for anyone who needs emotional support, so they don’t feel alone.

- Invest in our people
- Ensure diversity, equity and inclusion
- Leverage business intelligence
- Maximize process excellence
- Support growth
- Create an economic engine
