Hillcrest Transitional Housing offers homeless families, singles & youth a disciplined educational program within a caring, supportive environment. Unlike many organizations whose focus is one-time or emergency care, Hillcrest’s primary objective is to move clients from homelessness to self-sufficiency within 90 days by addressing the total life situation of the homeless families they serve.
One component of Hillcrest is our huge community garden which grows fruits and vegetables for the residents living in our housing facility. Join us to help tend to the garden! We will be doing a variety of outdoor work including but not limited to pulling weeds, harvesting produce, structures, and caring for crops. We might also do some yard to help keep the campus and recreation fields looking nice (weed eating, mowing, trimming trees/bushes, trash pick-up, etc.).
Stop by whenever you are available, you do not have to stay the whole time. All ages and experience levels are welcome. In case of bad weather the event will be canceled.
Address listed is the address of Hillcrest's office, the garden is just down the block on the corner of 31st and Barnett. Please meet at the pavilion by the playground.
Volunteers are welcome to take home fresh picked veggies!
