HomeAid Orange County

Volunteer "Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve."
-Martin Luther King Jr.

HomeAid's ability to bring the community together to provide a basic need like housing continues to help homeless families and individuals rebuild their lives. HomeAid has leveraged this ability to expand direct services to the community through the following service programs: HomeAid, Essentials, CareKits, Care Days, and Homelessness Awareness Month. These were initiated to provide basic needs beyond shelter to the families and individuals currently experiencing homelessness throughout Orange County.

HomeAid Essentials

Modeled after the core concept of HomeAid Orange County’s housing development program to work in partnerships with volunteers, Essentials is a community-wide effort to collect much needed items for homeless infants and toddlers. HomeAid partners with businesses, community organizations and individuals to collect baby products such as diapers, baby wipes and baby hygiene products. The items are then delivered to HomeAid’s service provider partners' who provide services to homeless mothers and their children.

HomeAid recruits volunteers to participate in collection of diapers and the sorting, counting and distribution of donations to local service provider partners. HomeAid works with hundreds of volunteers from the beginning of May to the beginning of June which is the duration of the main drive.

HomeAid CareKits

CareKit collection and packaging is also needed throughout the year. Volunteers are asked to help collect items for hygiene kits such as shampoo, soap, and lotion, and the kits are then distributed to the homeless on the streets. Volunteers are needed to help sort, count, package, and distribute these CareKits throughout the year. View or share the CareKit Flyer.

HomeAid Care Days

This involves coordinating volunteers to perform maintenance of housing developments with residential repairs, landscape removal and installation, interior painting and design and similar.
