Volunteer Opportunities

Join our amazing community of volunteers to help our homeless neighbors in need. 

Our Buddies Mentoring Program aims to match children in our shelter, Transitional Housing, and Supportive Housing programs with one-on-one mentors who will take them for regular outings and provide them with long-term social support. All mentors undergo a screening process and mandatory orientation.

The children currently involved in our Buddies Mentor Program are thriving – improved grades, more confidence, and one mentee even became the MVP of his baseball team! The program continues to make transformational changes in the lives of our children.

"It's been a very rewarding and humbling experience. I've learned a lot from my Buddy."
- HSI Mentor, Arvind Patel


  • Must be at least 16 years old
  • Able to provide transportation
  • Able to commit to 6 months minimum
  • Meet with mentee at least once per month
