Check out our 2018 Annual Report here!
There are an estimated 31,000 homeless and housing in secure youth between 12-24 in Orange County. These youth are at risk of falling victim to gang violence, substance abuse, human trafficking, disease and hunger. Our goal - Reach them before they reach the point of no return.
85% of the youth we house transition from crisis to self-sufficiency.
We give our youth a sense of safety, hope and belonging,
Safety through our street outreach program that brings kids in from the cold.
Hope through our one stop centers where together we create blueprints for success and provide referral services.
Belonging through relationships with trusted, caring adults who provide mentoring and life skills training, emotional and social support.
We believe that kids deserve the right to personal safety. Once on the streets young people are at the highest risk of being physically and sexually victimized. They self-medicate to reduce emotional trauma. They engage in sex to meet their need for food, shelter and clothing.
