During Homelessness Week this year Common Ground will be linking up with the tenants that work in their social enterprise, Coffee Ground, to help raise awareness. The event will take place on Wednesday 7th August. It will be an all day (7am - 2pm) free BBQ, with bacon and egg rolls in the morning, followed by a sausage sizzle at lunch time.
Common Ground is 50 social housing units, situated in Hobart's CBD. Part of our program here, to end the cycle of homelessness, was to get out tenants back in to the workforce. In March this year, Coffee Ground was launched and we now employ 8 of our formally homeless tenants.
