|KidWorks – Restoring At Risk Neighborhoods, One Life At A Time, Since 1993
Every day, children in Santa Ana face crime, poverty, and violence. In the face of these problems, so many children are losing hope and falling through the cracks, right in the backyard of Orange County. But at KidWorks, we believe in the power of hope to change a single life and in the power of a single life to change a family, a neighborhood, and an entire community.
|South County Outreach
Preventing hunger and homelessness by helping people help themselves.
|StandUp For Kids - Orange County
The mission of StandUp For Kids is ending the cycle of youth homelessness. We do this, every day, in cities across America. We carry out our mission through our volunteers who go to the streets in order to find, stabilize and otherwise help homeless and street kids improve their lives.
|Thomas House Family Shelter
To provide a safe, supportive environment and the resources necessary for homeless families with children to remain together while empowering them to become independent and self-sufficient.
Families Forward, founded in 1984, is a non-profit organization committed to helping local Orange County families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Our programs help families gain the skills and tools they need to stabilize, and regain or maintain their self-sufficiency and provide stability for their children.
Ripple KidsTM is a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring and empowering kids to take action in their communities by publicizing what their peers are doing.
|Project Hope Alliance
Project Hope Alliance is waging war on the homelessness sweeping through the streets of Orange County. The heart of our organization is beating for the children who are so often limited and discouraged by the financial circumstances of their parents. We firmly believe that through exceptional education and housing stability, children can find the hope they need to break the cycle of homelessness and welcome a brighter future.
