Who We Are

The Common Ground model was introduced to South Australia by internationally renowned and community development leader Rosanne Haggerty, founder of Common Ground New York.

Common Ground was established in 2006 by members of the Adelaide business community and the South Australian Government bringing together people on low incomes in a residential complex which includes self-contained apartments and communal spaces as well as office space for support services, workshops and training activities.

In 2015, the organisation joined forces with Housing Choices Australia to ensure Common Ground’s sustainability into the future. In 2017, Housing Choices South Australia was established.

The Common Ground program, delivered by HCSA, continues to thrive in Adelaide as we look for further opportunities to expand our supportive housing programs and end people’s homelessness experience.
