HOMELESSNESS IS A DEVASTATING CONDITION.
Chronic homelessness is growing every year in Orange County with no slowing in sight. Since 2007, chronic homelessness has increased 966%. In the Orange County 2022 Point In Time count, over 55% of homeless are chronic and unsheltered. We know that no single agency fills all the needs of a chronic homeless individual, and the Homeless Services System is complicated and overwhelming.
OUR FATHER'S TABLE PROVES THE CYCLE OF CHRONIC HOMELESSNESS CAN END, ONE PERSON AT A TIME!
Together, we overcome the complex issues of getting those experiencing chronic homelessness off the streets, giving a hand up, not a hand out.
HOMELESS INTERVENTION TOWARDS A PATHWAY HOME!
Our alumni work, pay taxes, rent apartments, own homes, purchase groceries, graduate college, get married, have children, become great parents. They give back by volunteering, sharing their life experiences with others who are still working their way out of homelessness. They live fulfilled lives: spiritually, physically, and emotionally and become part of their community, enriching the of lives of everyone around them.
Over 349 men, women, and children are stable, clean and sober in a place called home.
Our alumni overcome the obstacles that, in the past, had contributed to them ending up on the streets over and over again.
We teach them life skills, building resilience, and self-sufficiency so they can become contributing members of society.
COMMUNITY, STRUCTURE, AND FAMILY
For those facing chronic homelessness, change isn’t just about a hot meal and a place to stay. Change is about sustaining and growing as a person emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
Project: Restoration has the power to completely change the trajectory of not only an individual’s life, but the lives of their children, their children’s children, and their families, for years to come.
