|Welcome to Common Place
Common Place is a social service agency
on Peoria's South Side that helps people overcome poverty
and injustice through education. At Common Place,
educational programs start with our Youth Programs, grades
K-12. Our Youth Programs offer academic assistance, life skills, and cultural enrichment to
build self esteem and success in school. Common Place
literacy programs help adults learn reading, writing, and
math skills and acquire self-esteem and self-confidence
needed to obtain employment.
Common Place's mission is to embrace diversity and improve lives through education and family support.
