Lindsay woke with a start. She was numb with cold. Gradually, her mind grasped that she was lying on the hard ground along the riverbed that had been “home” for the past few nights.
And then came the flood of memories. Her mom not noticing or caring about where her children were going or what they were up to. Her dad, with a drink in his hand, sitting for hours on end. She remembered craving his attention as a little girl, and how he masked his pain from the horrors of Vietnam.
Most days, she had felt invisible. No one knew her heartache…
The need seems to grow every year in Orange County. But thanks to donors like you, we will serve thousands of meals each year. What a feeling it is to see the joy on the face of a child who is having a healthy meal for the first time in weeks!
A meal changes lives. It gives hope.
Join us in Serving Hope to Orange County's poor and homeless.
The Village of Hope is an 18-24 month transitional housing program to shelter, feed, and invest in the personal and professional development of 192 homeless persons and families.
Single men, women, and single mothers are assigned to dorm-style housing with roommates; single fathers and two-parent families are assigned to family suites. Housing is appropriately-separated and monitored.
We maintain a clothing room at the Village of Hope to help Residents in need. Clothes are donated and volunteers serve to sort them and place them on shelves/hangers in our Men’s or Women’s clothing rooms. Our residents (women, men, and children) can access the items when approved by their Case Manager.
The Hurtt Family Health Clinic is a free clinic for the medically uninsured of all ages. Patients are served on a first-come, first-serve basis. We do not schedule appointments.Services can include “sick visit” evaluations, clinical evaluations, health screenings, acute care with referral for long term management for conditions such as high-blood pressure and diabetes, provision of medication (free of cost), referrals for diagnostic examination, and administration of flu vaccines.
Through a partnership with the Tustin Adult School, residents earn their high school diploma by completing missing high school credits and passing the California High School Exit Examination. Coursework for residents is provided through the Tustin Adult School every two weeks and completed at the Village of Hope. The Success Center provides tutors in a "study-hall" setting. Coursework is returned to the Tustin Adult School where it is evaluated.
The Village of Hope is a back-to-work transitional housing program, committed to helping homeless individuals and families become self-sufficient. Roughly a year into their program, clients attend a five-day-intensive jobs workshop at the Sunwest Bank Success Center, an on-site job readiness center.
Graduates from the 5-day intensive workshop have a 96% success rate in finding employment.
