The Check In Center is a storage facility for our homeless friends. Our friends experiencing homelessness get a safe and secure place to store their belongings. This is a great place to volunteer if you have never done so before. The CIC offers a place for our volunteers & clients to build community and friendships in order to help those who are homeless to end their homelessness. We are considered to be the frontlines of homelessness in the city of Costa Mesa since many of them begin building their friendships & connections at the CIC.

Our volunteers commit to at least 2 shifts a month in order to build relationships with our clients. During your shifts, you will assist the lead volunteer in opening up, grabbing bins, closing up, and most importantly engaging our clients through listening to their stories and asking questions. We are open 6 days a week, Monday-Saturday. Our shifts are the following:

Monday-Friday AM: 6-7:30 am
Saturday AM: 7-10 am

Monday-Saturday PM: 6:30-7:30 pm

If you would like to volunteer, please click on the red "Please Sign Me Up!" button and our Check In Center Manager, Reina Cuthill, will be in contact with you.
