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.
We believe that how we work is as important as the positive outcomes of what we accomplish. Employees describe our work environment as: challenging, a learning environment where hard questions are asked, flexible with scheduling, diverse, friendly and caring.
Our Race & Social Justice efforts guide us as we work alongside our residents, program participants, coworkers and community partners to end poverty. We engage in intentional learning efforts to understand and dismantle institutional racism, and build cultural sensitivity.
Our managers support employees in their professional development. 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.
