AZ Common Ground Offers People a Second Chance at Life

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

There is a local non-profit organization that is working hard to give people hope after some of life’s big challenges.

AZ Common Ground is on a mission to “support, advocate and mentor previously incarcerated youth and adults to become servant leaders within Maricopa County,” as shared on their official website.

They provide services and opportunities to people once they get out of jail, with a focus on making sure these individuals make better choices and contribute positively to the local community. Since 2011, they have been teaching life skills to keep people off the streets and away from crime. Over the years, AZ Common Ground has successfully graduated 681 students from its programs, and only 27 have reoffended and returned to prison.

For more information, please visit the official website of AZ Common Ground HERE.

AZ Common Ground is located at 3101 North Central Avenue in Phoenix.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
