Common Space provides a shared space where people of all ages, races, abilities, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds make connections and cross boundaries. We offer creative programming that includes classes, workshops, and discussion groups, as well as a community space to learn, meet, share, and enjoy a tasty treat. We create fair-wage jobs for community members with many talents and abilities who are seeking part-time/flexible employment and appreciate a place to belong. We have a cafe offering tasty treats, as well as a retail area curated with items created by our participants and other local artisans. In addition- we have a vast array of social conscious books, fair trade items and more. We partner with school and educational institutions, small businesses, and organizations to achieve our mission.
Our vision is that community members know each other and value diversity with an open mind, kind heart, and thoughtful conversation.
