Homeless Garden Project



The Customer Service Volunteer welcomes customers, offers to answer questions, assists at the register, restocks merchandise, supports Shift Manager as needed, and educates customers in the store about HGP, upcoming events, and how they can support and get involved.

Customer Service shifts are 7 days/week: 12pm - 2pm, 2pm-4pm & 4pm-6pm.

All volunteers must attend one orientation training before their first volunteer shift. Once you attend an orientation, I will add you to our online work scheduler, so you can select the shifts you'd like to work.

Orientations are hosted at the store location, 1338 Pacific Avenue. I will send you an email to sign up. You only need to attend one orientation.

About our Store: Our Store is where we make a significant amount of our yearly income to support our transitional employment and job training program for folks experiencing homelessness or housing instability. Those who are in the training program make over 40 types of products using materials we grow on the farm, including food products, bath and body products, and dried-flower wreaths. Each year we have a network of over 100 volunteers who support the store. The store is, in part, volunteer run, meaning that the profit we make goes directly toward supporting our programs and folks transitioning out of homelessness.
