Introducing Common Ground Gold Coast
Common Ground Gold Coast (CGGC) has been established, through the support of Common Ground Queensland (CGQ). CGGC is a subsidiary organisation of CGQ, with the express aim of establishing a Common Ground supportive housing project on the Gold Coast.
The Common Ground model is solution to homelessness underpinned by supportive housing principles, bringing housing, support services and the community together.
Our initial project will seek to establish 200 units of supportive housing to permanently house and support individuals sleeping rough, or those who experience chronic homelessness. It is hoped that governments at all levels, business and the community, will contribute to delivering this project on the Gold Coast where the need is significant.
“Common Ground is a place to call home and a place to belong. We end homelessness a person at a time. We give people back the stability, dignity, care and community that chronic homelessness takes away from them. For the past 10 years we have delivered our supportive housing response at Brisbane Common Ground, we know it works. We are excited to be working with your community and supporters to deliver a Common Ground for the Gold Coast.”
Sonya Keep, CEO, Common Ground Queensland
We are asking the Gold Coast Community to join us in our call to end homelessness on the Gold Coast. We invite you to contribute, participate and share in our journey.
Donations made to Common Ground Gold Coast will be used to create opportunities for supportive housing that will be offered to individuals and families who have experienced or are at risk of homelessness, and require support to remain housed. To make a donation, please click here.
We are also interested in working in partnership with individuals, organisations, and government to create solutions that benefit the whole community.
