Meeting Ground 

The Path from Shelter to Home.

 Rooted in Christian Values

Meeting Ground grew from the concept of "shelter" to the reality of "home" for people experiencing homelessness.

Our mission is to help meet basic human needs and to address the root problems that perpetuate the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
