Celebrating 50 years together!

Gretchen Whitmer

Governor of Michigan

I am truly grateful for all your service in the past five decades. Your organization has helped many Michiganders and provided them with necessary resources during times of crisis. I would especially like to thank you for your leadership and dedication to operating the Michigan Crisis and Access Line (MiCAL). Your efforts are greatly appreciated in ensuring the health and well-being of Michiganders in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Senator Gary Peters

Founded in 1971 by a group of students, parents, and community leaders concerned about the rise in substance abuse and suicide, Common Ground operates today as a 24/7 crisis center dedicated to helping youth, adults, and families in crisis throughout Oakland County. Each year, over 80,000 Oakland community residents utilize Common Ground's 16 programs, ranging from support groups to legal clinics, which aim to help community members in need. [This] celebration is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the incredibly significant and meaningful work of Common Ground on behalf of the Oakland County community.

Honorable Jacob Cunningham

Circuit Court Judge

On behalf of the Oakland County Sixth Circuit Court Family Division Bench, we would like to extend our congratulations to Common Ground on its 50th anniversary. The wide range of services offered by Common Ground truly helps our Oakland County families and children navigate crisis. In turn, we would not be able to assist families in our role as jurists without the assistance from frontline organizations like Common Ground sharing in our collective passion to serve this community. We applaud Common Ground on its anniversary and look forward to its continued success.

Charlie Cavell

County Commissioner, District #18
Oakland County Board of Commissioners

I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations and gratitude to Common Ground on the special occasion of its 50th anniversary. Since it was founded in 1971, the organization has supported Oakland County youth, adults, and families in crisis. Common Ground has grown and evolved over the past five decades, improving and expanding its programming to meet the most urgent needs of our community. It now serves 80,000 people annually, providing critical support and services to our most vulnerable residents. It is an honor to recognize Common Ground and its dedicated staff for their important work on this milestone anniversary.
