The mission of High Desert Homeless Services is provide the structure and resources needed to support our clients as they work toward permanent employment and housing.
 

Programs

HDHS is dedicated to providing programs to our homeless clients that will stabilize their lives and help them to become or get back to being productive citizens in our local communities. We offer Employment Training, Job Search, Single and Family Temporary Housing & Transportation Services.

Partner

HDHS consistently has a need for stable funding partners. With an economy that is less than sound, we rely on our partners in the public and private sector for funding assistance. Without this vital funding we would not be able to provide these necessary humanitarian community programs.

Volunteers

In making sure that as many funds as possible are directed to our clients we are always in need of volunteer workers. We work with organizations such as government entities, schools and other organizations to orchestrate the necessary logistics for obtaining qualified volunteers.

We are always looking for volunteers to help us in accomplishing our mission to successfully help the homeless. We are looking for the following:

  • Volunteers that can assist with daily tasks.
  • Volunteers that could help us in our fundraising/fundraisers
  • Volunteers with unique technical or professional skills
  • Volunteers to help with painting, automobile repairs, etc.
