Where hope meets action

Making a Difference, One Life at a Time

We’re a groundbreaking partnership across multiple cities and disciplines with one vital mission: to bring reliable relief and consistent support to individuals experiencing homelessness in the North Orange County Service Planning Area (SPA).

Our Mission Statement

The HOPE Center of Orange County is a ground-breaking multi-city, multi-disciplinary partnership that seeks to establish community-wide coordination and standardization in homeless outreach and engagement by centralizing resources, coordinating responses, and integrating data.

Our Mission is to help individuals experiencing homelessness in the North Orange County Service Planning Area (SPA) gain more reliable relief and consistent support.  The HOPE Center’s mantra is “Right People, Right Resources, Right Now.” We work diligently to align the efforts and strategies of North Orange County cities, community-based organizations, behavioral health street practitioners, and community health workers to improve the capacity of the homeless services system to effectively plan, manage, and allocate resources so that responses are appropriate and expedient.

Right People, Right Resources, Right Now

We don’t just provide resources; we ensure they are targeted and timely.

Our mantra of “Right People, Right Resources, Right Now” drives every decision we make.
