who we are

Common Ground Montgomery is a non-profit, community development organization located in Montgomery, Alabama. Started in 2006, CGM is a non-denominational Christian ministry that focuses on youth development and leadership, after school programs and camps, mentoring, community initiatives, and cross-cultural relationships and racial reconciliation. With our network of donors and volunteers, we hope to effect change for the Washington Park community and communities like it in our city and beyond. Together, we have also spun off two community initiatives to become their own 501(c)(3) non-profts, a housing renovation and adult financial literacy organization, and a food bank and clothes closet with facilities for homeless persons to bathe and wash clothes.

Our Vision is to see a renovated, thriving community in Washington Park that has strong, godly leadership, intact two-parent families, cares for the underprivileged, poor, and marginalized, and becomes an incubator for gospel-created, cross-cultural relationships that transform Montgomery and beyond. 


Our Mission is to revitalize the Washington Park community and transform the city of Montgomery and beyond, to the glory of God, through:

  • 1. Building leaders from urban youth through long-term mentorship, biblical discipleship, and developmental programs.

  • 2. Creating an umbrella of Christian community development partners that focus on neighborhood transformation.

  • 3. Teaching principles of unity and change through the Common Ground Institute.
