About COMMON GROUND SOCIETY

Location:

52 Mission Cir. STE 124, SANTA ROSA, CA 95409, US

Mission Statement

We share the stories of our lives to educate and empower our community to be more compassionate, accepting, and inclusive of people with disabilities. Common Ground Society ensures that all families feel a sense of belonging through meaningful connections and local support.

Description

Common Ground Society all began at preschool. Larkin and Jessica did a presentation on Down syndrome at their children’s preschool for World Down syndrome Day in 2017. Covered in the Press Democrat, news of the presentation quickly spread and many of Larkin’s teaching colleagues asked "Just Two Moms" (as they became known as) to come and present to their classes. They shifted their focus from just Down syndrome to a multitude of diagnoses. The requests quickly became overwhelming for these busy moms, so they decided to try their hand at all-school assemblies. Low and behold, it was a hit! Challenged by the COVID outbreak, they revamped their presentations and are now offering virtual presentations to all different types of groups, spreading the word of acceptance and inclusion.

Larkin started a Facebook group to support the local disability community by supporting all members of the family who have a loved one with a disability. We have support groups for Moms, Dads, siblings, 0-3 new families and family meet ups!
