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).

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.

United in Purpose

We work tirelessly to unify the efforts of North Orange County cities, community organizations, behavioral health street practitioners, and community health workers. By doing so, we enhance our community’s ability to plan, manage, and allocate resources effectively. This collaborative approach ensures that help is not only available but is also appropriate and expedient.

Why Does This Matter?

The traditional approach to addressing homelessness has often been fragmented, leaving gaps that vulnerable individuals can slip through. We aim to fill those gaps by centralizing resources, coordinating responses, and integrating data.

Together, we can make a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most.
