The Aurora Commons
The Aurora Commons is a nonprofit organization established by churches in 2011 to walk alongside and care for our neighbors along Seattle’s Aurora Avenue, many of whom are unhoused, isolated, involved in street-based sex work, and severely drug dependent. This became Bethany's first partnership organization in 2012. This nonprofit organization strives to build real community and relationships with the diverse population of the Aurora neighborhood. A great first step to getting involved is becoming a chaplain of presence, but they have a large variety of ways to use your skills at the Commons on their website. You can learn more about the Commons and how we partner with them on our local partners page.
