Solid Ground believes poverty is solvable. We’re optimistic, because we’ve seen our work’s impact in the community firsthand. Our staff listen to and honor input from the people we serve. As we work to meet basic needs, nurture success, and spread change, we’re guided by social justice, compassion, collaboration, accountability, respect, and integrity.
Employees describe our work environment as a learning culture where challenging questions are asked and we learn together. We have a diverse, friendly, and caring staff who reflect the communities we serve.
We believe that how we work is as important as the positive outcomes of what we accomplish. We work alongside our residents, program participants, and community partners, guided by our commitment to race and social justice and trauma-informed care.
We engage in intentional learning efforts to understand and dismantle institutional racism and build cultural sensitivity. Through cross-agency leadership committees, job shadowing programs, onsite trainings, and goal setting, employees can learn and work toward their career goals at Solid Ground.
