TRANSFORMING THE WAY WE LIVE TOGETHER IN MEADVILLE, PA
We work in partnership with local government, housing and social service agencies, and the broader community, in order to improve housing. Every member brings their own resources, relationships, knowledge, and skills. Together, as Common Roots, we combine that power to improve the overall housing situation in Meadville.
Common Roots grew out of the 2015 Year of Meadville and the My Meadville project. When a need for safe, affordable, sustainable housing was identified, our members started laying the foundation for Common Roots.
When we say we, we really mean it. Common Roots is a membership-based organization. That means that our members work together to plan and execute our projects. Membership costs $10 per year.

Common Roots is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. That means all of our money goes to making Common Roots and its projects run. It also means that we are officially recognized by the United States government as a nonprofit.
