Common Roots

Goal: $5,000.00

Specific Need

We are working on our first housing project at 1189-91 South Main St. in Meadville. Stage One involves infrastructure, such as framing and rebeaming, constructing a beautiful double-decker back porch and installing an efficient utilities system. All money we raise Aug. 10 and 11 will help us complete the first stage of renovations.

Mission

Common Roots envisions healthy and empowered neighborhoods in our hometown of Meadville, PA. Our role in achieving that vision is to develop dignified, sustainable and attainable housing.

Profile

You've seen us on Facebook. So what's all that about?

 

Common Roots is a volunteer-driven group that strives to improve housing options in Meadville.

 

We're starting with the house on South Main. It's located right beside the Creating Landscapes for Families garden. Volunteers have put in more than 1,000 hours gutting the place, and now it's time to put it back together as four small apartments for low-income renters.

 

Your donation helps us pay for utility upgrades to make the apartments energy- and cost-efficient and the monthly costs of having a house, such as bills and taxes.

 

Follow our Crawford Gives 2020 journey on Facebook. Thank you for your generosity and interest in improving living conditions in Meadville.
