About Common Focus

Common Focus is a non-profit organization committed to the building of community by creating dialogue that leads to action. Our commitment to create:

  • Common Focus — Through productive community conversations, community members build trust and take ownership of shared problems.
  • Common Action — Ideas and talk without action lead to disappointment and cynicism.
  • Common Good — Community survives on the realization that what affects me also affects you.

Faith & Community Building

At the heart of community are faith and the life of the spirit. The life of the spirit is not limited to religion or even to religious people, though much of the work of rebuilding community is the result of people motivated by religious faith. Community is not guaranteed, and the only hope of building and maintaining community depends on every asset being used and every member of the community being involved.
