Who We Are

Common Ground Adelaide a not-for-profit organisation providing high quality housing coupled with resources and support for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

CGA was established in 2006 by members of the Adelaide business community and South Australian Government.

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

It brings 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, CGA joined forces with Housing Choices Australia. CGA is now part of the Housing Choices Australia Group. This provides CGA with increased capacity to grow and become more sustainable without compromising its proven model of housing coupled with long term case managed support for those who need it.
