Create Common Good

Happy 10th anniversary to Create Common Good.

The Boise-based nonprofit offers food-service training and job-placement services to individuals with barriers to employment and has helped 725 people — including refugees, women escaping domestic violence and those overcoming addiction — gain new skills and achieve self-sufficiency.

The Women’s and Children’s Alliance, which provides safety, healing and freedom from domestic abuse and sexual assault, has been involved with CCG since 2013. Our partnership makes a significant difference in this community and in the lives of many of the women the WCA serves.

We’ve referred 45 clients, and CCG’s cocooning, confidence-building effects have empowered 70 percent to uncover their working potential by graduating and finding jobs that pay living wages and often have benefits.

Please join us at CCG’s Grateful (un)Gala this Saturday, Oct. 20, from 6-9 p.m. at Bronco Stadium’s Stueckle Sky Center. It pairs five local celebrity chefs with CCG graduates and trainees preparing small plates while guests enjoy live music, food- and drink-inspired silent auctions, and a brief, one-of-a-kind live auction. An on-site after party with Boise Rockeoke follows from 9-10:30 p.m. Tickets are available online at grateful-ungala.com or by phone at (208) 258-6800. The cost is $150, and a portion is even tax deductible.

– Bea Black, executive director, Women’s and Children’s Alliance, Boise
