Help out at The Check-In Center, a place that, after agreeing to certain standards and rules, local individuals who are experiencing homelessness can have access to a safe, secure space to store their items. This could also be considered the front-lines of homelessness in Costa Mesa. As they use the service provided at the Check-in Center, clients also start to build community with other clients as well as the volunteers. 

The Check-in Center is a great place to begin learning about the homeless community and to build relationships.

Shifts are 1 hour long M-F from 6:30-7:30 am and pm. Saturday morning the CIC is open from 7:30-10 am and 6:30-7:30 pm. Three to four volunteers are needed for each shift.

To begin volunteering click the red sign-up button. You will receive a response from the Check-in Center manager to discuss your availability and then be added to the schedule.
