What We Do

GROW Concord has three core activities. First and foremost, we help our unhoused community members and those in need. Second, we help educate others on the homelessness crisis and how to be an ally to your unhoused neighbors. Third, we actively fundraise, train volunteers, and seek donations in kind, including supplies, spaces, and meals.

When helping our unhoused community members we offer a variety of services including: 

  • Hot meals

  • Weekly showers

  • Transitions to sober living

  • Connecting people to partners and resources

  • Laundry

  • Pet food

  • Clothing

  • Basic supplies

When fundraising and gathering supplies we work with the City of Concord, businesses, and neighbors too.
