Help Us Find Rental Units to End Homelessness for Our OC Neighbors

You can make a difference in ending someone’s homelessness today. All it takes is connecting an available rental unit to our WelcomeHomeOC℠ program.

Together, we have the opportunity to end homelessness for hundreds of our neighbors in Orange County through our housing navigation program, but we need your help. Our United to End Homelessness℠ team is working diligently to secure rental units. Urgency is required as we must house these families and individuals promptly before their housing vouchers expire. Will you help Orange County seize this opportunity to end homelessness for hundreds of our neighbors?

Send us information about upcoming rental units in your neighborhood.

You can send us information by submitting a form or texting us the information.

Tips on where to find rentals:

  • Snap a photo of a “for rent” sign when on a walk
  • Grab the information off of a community bulletin board at your favorite coffee shop
  • Forward a post from an online neighborhood group
  • If you hear about someone moving, ask if their home will be available for rent

Send us rental units information via form.

Please fill in the following fields as completely as you can. Once we receive the information, a WelcomeHomeOC staff member will contact the property and walk them through how to lease through our program.

Send us rental units information via text.

Another option is to use your smartphone to text/sms the rental information to this phone number:

Recommend a great property owner or company.

Do you have a great landlord or know someone who you would trust to rent from? Recommend them for membership in our Property Provider Network by emailing their name and contact information to WelcomeHomeOC@unitedwayoc.org.

Spread the word in your community.

Whether in person or online, let people know that WelcomeHomeOC is a win-win for the community and for rental businesses. Share, post, or drop off the flyer about WelcomeHomeOC at:
  • Local property management or real estate offices
  • Online neighborhood groups (like on Facebook or Nextdoor)
  • Religious communities, social clubs, or civic groups
  • Homeowners Association meetings
  • Community hubs like coffee shops, grocery stores, and gyms
  • City hall, recreation centers, and senior centers
Together we can end homelessness one rental unit at a time, and change lives for hundreds in our community!
