At Solid Ground, we believe poverty is solvable – but we can’t do it alone. Volunteers are essential to our work to meet basic needs, nurture success, and spread change – and they also support our race and social justice efforts. Join us to create a community beyond poverty and oppression where all people have equitable opportunity to thrive!
