The tie that binds is the historic, inspirational culture of this organization.
In the words of Commons’ founder, Graham Taylor, this is a place that truly works WITH people, not just FOR them. This is such an important distinction. There are no hand-outs at Commons. Successes are earned here.
This is a place (a ‘Commons’) where people come together to make life better on an individual, family and community level. I witnessed countless lives improved for the better. And my own life has improved by sharing in the mission with so many other wonderful people. The lessons I have learned here will serve me well for the rest of my life. And I will always consider myself part of the Commons’ family.
