Today, Solid Ground assists more than 75,000 households annually to overcome poverty and to build better future.
Solid Ground leads with their values: social justice, compassion, collaboration, accountability, respect, and integrity. For example, Solid Ground believes that housing and stability are foundational to ending poverty.
