Mission Statement

CommonBond's mission is to build stable homes, strong futures, and vibrant communities. A safe, stable, and affordable home is the foundation for everything in life. It’s the place where each person can find what they need to meet their goals and build their best life. In other words, a CommonBond community. CommonBond is an affordable housing nonprofit organization that creates communities throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and South Dakota to help people of all ages and walks of life meet their goals and thrive. With five decades of working with vulnerable populations as an affordable housing organization, we know that when people have stability in their homes, children do better in school, teens graduate, adults find jobs with wages to support their families, and older adults maintain their independence.


We believe home is the foundation for everything in life. For over 50 years, CommonBond has provided affordable, stable homes for families, veterans, and seniors. Not only do we connect residents with housing that will help them thrive, but we offer wraparound services that help folks define and achieve their own success. Programming is available to all CommonBond residents and is tied to four strategic priorities: Stability & Independence, Health and Wellness, Education & Advancement, and Community Building & Engagement. We know that through these focus areas, we’re able to support residents in finding solutions that matter. Our Advantage Services and Property Management teams work together to pro-actively support residents in a multitude of areas, such as subsidized housing, Section 8 vouchers, mentor programs for students, job training, career development, veterans programs, and much, much more.

CommonBond is a great place to volunteer. The staff are helpful, and friendly. I have been able to work with the same student for four years in a row, and it's been a great experience.

I am so impressed with Common Bond's approach to strengthening and empowering families. The services they provide help families feel secure. I am part of the Study Buddies program where I can offer my time to help someone become a better reader and a better student. Common Bond provides a lesson plan and I offer my time. Now I have a bond with a student and we have discovered that we have lots in common: laughing, drawing, and reading to name a few!

Commonbond is a great organization for helping people holistically. I personally volunteer in the homework center, which is an after school program to make sure students are getting their school work done and give extra help in subjects like reading and math. This is my second year volunteering and I come back because it is convenient and rewarding. Volunteering in my busy schedule is easy, because the commitment can be as low as my one and a half hours a week.

Timings haven't worked for me to volunteer here yet, but I keep an eye on them!

CommonBond Communities is a great place to volunteer and impact a student's life. The staff at the towers are friendly and love to see the residents succeed. There are many volunteer opportunities here; study buddies, adult and senior ed, summer fun programs, etc.
