These victories really matter!
You can support HGP's essential work by making a gift to expand the impact of our programs. By increasing our programmatic resources to match our larger farm site, we can serve more people who are experiencing homelessness, provide more volunteer opportunities for community members, and feed more underserved community members by growing even more organic food for those in need.
We hope you might take advantage of the opportunity to double your gift, thanks to a generous $5,000 challenge gift from Martha Zuniga in honor of her husband Glenn George Capps.
Our programs are successful at a rate of over 90% of trainee graduates obtaining stable housing and employment within 3 months of leaving the program.
We grow thousands of pounds of fresh, organic produce annually which is distributed to nonprofits throughout Santa Cruz County serving hundreds of our neighbors.
Watch our trainee, Janel, speak at our Sustain Supper this July and tell how our program is supporting transformation in her life.
“I have gained many new habits and tools to help me be to be the best I can as the result of my time here at the Homeless Garden Project Transitional Employment Program.
"I am very grateful for being accepted into a community of love, respect and support that anyone who comes to the Farm or workshop is sure to enjoy at any time. At this program, it doesn’t matter what you wear, or how you look. You are not judged and everyone is welcome. I believe these tools will help me be better as I move forward on my journey, to be the best mother, friend and colleague I can be. I have learned how to be accountable and be there for those that may need me."
Please join us in helping people like Janel by supporting the Impact Fund so that we can provide our proven, successful program to other individuals experiencing homelessness.
