Homelessness in Orange County has grown to crisis proportions.
Thousands of our neighbors have lost hope on the streets. Veterans who fought for our freedom are now fighting for a place to call home. People with disabilities, our community’s most vulnerable, too often finding themselves chronically homeless.
That’s why Orange County United Way and its partners in the business, philanthropic, faith-based, non-profit and government sectors launched United to End Homelessness. The goal of this collaborative effort is simple: end homelessness in Orange County in a humane and dignified way by providing long-term housing with supportive care to those who need it the most.
Unless we, as a community, come together now to find real and lasting solutions, this crisis will spiral out of control.

It’s imperative that we have a system of care that can get these individuals housed as quickly as possible.
