Nearly 1/3 of HEP’s population consists of the brave men and women who serve our country – a figure that is consistent with the national homeless population of US Vets. Recognizing that this demographic of the homeless community requires specialized care, HEP works hand in hand with the Veterans Administration to provide an array of veteran-specific programs to lead them back to self-sufficiency. Veterans seek refuge in two apartment complexes on HEP’s campus: Fairburn Apartments for men, and HEP West Apartments for men and women. HEP also reserves bed-space in our other shelter offerings, especially for vets.
We will be building a shade structure, installing additional irrigation, and building tables in the community garden. They use the food they grow help the cost of feeding the people of HEP. Lunch will be provided. Project is for 16+.

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
