Fun & Games

We have enjoyed the park being so close to our new location, as seen here in these beautiful photos of Common Ground members taking part in some outdoor games.


Huge Event at Harkness

Yesterday, Common Ground hosted 61 people at Camp Harkness for a cookout. We were so happy to spend the day with our friends from Team Time Clubhouse from New Britain, as well as InterCommunity’s Community Foundations and ACT Programs. This is a day that we will not soon forget, and we are very proud of the hard work displayed by Common Ground staff and clients to make it happen.

Clubhouse Get-Together


Yesterday, Common Ground members got together with several partners from the We Can Clubhouse and the Second Wind Clubhouse from Manchester and Enfield. This event was completely planned and run by our members and interns. We are so proud of their hard work and of our connection to the great clubhouses with whom we enjoyed the day.

Working with National Geographic


Yesterday, Common Grounders, along with interns from Goodwin College and Quinnipiac University, staff and clients from Community Health Resources in Manchester, land owners from Crystal Lake, a professional photographer, and a partner of National Geographic’s Critter Cam research met in Ellington to set a trap for Snapping Turtles. These members with an interest in the natural world had an opportunity to work with allies from various backgrounds and learn the true meaning of community partnership.
