The Second Chance Project

This touching video details the experience of people involved in the groundbreaking Second Chance Project, which gives people in recovery a chance to build experience and confidence in a unique way. Participants take care of critically endangered Vietnamese Pond Turtles, Mauremys annamensis, to help prevent the species from going extinct. This project provides a second chance to the turtles, but also to people who might be hoping to build their resumes and have something unique to talk about in their next job interview.

Oops, We Did It Again!

Common Ground members say “cheese” after refusing to eat things like cheese! We came in second place, among all clubhouses from across the state, for the fourth straight year, in the ReNew Walk Challenge! And, after all of our work to support one another, we came in FIRST PLACE for their healthy eating challenge, which required eating as many fruits and vegetables and drinking as much water as possible. We are so proud of each other and look forward to competing again next year!
