GrowTH can only operate with the hard work and dedication of local volunteers. Each year over 450 volunteers give, at a conservative estimate, 10,000 hours of their time to serve our guests.

There is a staff team that manage the shelter and activities of GrowTH and provide the support and resettlement assistance for guests. Legal responsibility for GrowTH’s activities is held by a board of trustees.
