Why Support HomeAid Orange County? Because not all heroes wear capes
- 15,000+ are experiencing homelessness each and every day in Orange County
- 1,300 school-age children registered as homeless in 2015
- 450+ mothers and babies are living in shelters right now
- 61% of sleeping in shelters each night are families with young children
For 27 years, HomeAid Orange County has worked with the Orange County community to provide housing as the first step for those who suddenly find they have no place to call home. By building these doorways, HomeAid, along with those who provide their support, offers hope to those who are experiencing homelessness and starts them on their journey of rebuilding their lives.
HomeAid's annual Doorways for Hope gala will be held on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at the Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach. HomeAid is asking guests to join us for a night when heroes and villains join forces toward a common goal of ending homelessness.
Thank YOU for helping HomeAid build Doorways for Hope for those experiencing homelessness.
