Our Mission

To offer support and guidance to homeless men seeking a return to a healthy, productive lifestyle while enrolled in a recuperative, life-changing program through the generosity of local farmers, gourmet chefs, and volunteers with a communal tailgate feast and a Major League baseball game— America’s greatest pastime.

To provide a hot-line phone bank for job openings, career and interview advice, program enlistment details, and spiritual support.

To expand our concept to communities and baseball cities all across America.

Are you hiring?

We have a special group of newly trained men with a strong commitment and enthusiasm for a wide array of jobs. San Diego, Anaheim, and Los Angeles areas preferred for now.

Are you training?

We're looking for companies with on-the-job training positions throughout Southern California. We know a few good men!

We Need Your Help

You can join our team in person or in spirit with your donation. Help us give these courageous men a hand up as they reach their program objectives and return to mainstream society.
