About

Use your love of gardening to help make a house a home!

Plymouth Healing Communities is seeking volunteers to assist with basic garden maintenance and grounds-keeping tasks at each of our facilities: two houses and two small apartment buildings located in West Seattle, Beacon Hill and Central District. There is no lawn mowing or heavy equipment operation involved and tools will be provided. Days and times are flexible and weather dependent.

Plymouth Healing Communities provides community, companionship, and housing, both temporary and permanent, to individuals living with mental illness who have been homeless or are at risk of homelessness due to their illness experience. Companionship is what makes our organization unique. Every individual in our program has the opportunity to meet one on one or within a group setting with a companion who offers emotional and psychosocial support, while still receiving more direct mental health services from our partner agency. We offer a warm, safe place where both residents and companions can pause, reflect and consider their next step in life. Our homes and apartments, situated in neighborhoods, help to de-stigmatize mental illness and create communities that are less fearful and more complete.
