Our Impact

Every month, we welcome over four hundred community members through the doors of our brick-and-mortar location in Downtown Fresno for organizations to have a place to meet, host events and access resources for capacity building.

COMMON SPACE is also a dedicated Safe Place. By being a Safe Place site, we provide youth with immediate interventions, supportive services, and professional referrals to Fresno EOC Sanctuary and Youth Services including counseling, shelter and case management.

Hear from partners


Real authentic women wellness (RAWW)

COMMON SPACE has given RAWW a home to build a credible brand as a revolutionary organization to enhance women's mental, physical, sexual, spiritual health and to help them connect with their life's purpose.

best buddies

COMMON SPACE provided Best Buddies a space for school advisors, donors, board members, and families to meet at. They have helped us to build a foundation so we can serve people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities(IDD).


For years, Trans-e-motion (TEM) has had to scramble for safe spaces for the transgender and non-binary communities. Through COMMON SPACE, we have hosted memorials, regular support groups, and successful art nights.


With the support of COMMON SPACE, we have grown from a mobile program to one with a place to host events and build collaborative efforts with and for our community. With the loss of other local resources, we are proud COMMON SPACE is here!


If you haven't stopped by, you should. This is a place that makes you feel welcomed and at home. I left with a feeling that makes me want to do more, and make change.
