Common Ground Community, Inc. (“Common Ground”) is a community center in the Cedar Grove neighborhood in Shreveport, LA making a difference through caring relationships and genuine acts of service. Some of the volunteers have been working in the Cedar Grove community since 1995. Our mission targets the most basic of human needs – compassion, care, concern and acceptance. While providing a hot meal, food bags, clothing, and children’s activities, members of Common Ground form relationships with Cedar Grove residents and share part of themselves with the community. We believe that this is the element of the program which will truly change lives. We are a 501 (3)(c) non-profit organization and rely on private gifts and grants to sustain our programs and facility. Though we have friends in many churches, we are not directly connected to any particular church. We are simply a group of believers attempting to be the body of Christ outside the walls of an institutional structure.
We have many programs and services that reach out to our neighbors in the Cedar Grove area. If you would like to get more information and see what we are doing go check out Our Ministries page.
