Thanks to your generous donations to our Pandemic Relief Fund, over the last three weeks we have been able to help 564 families who were referred to us for our pilot Homelessness Prevention Program by 21 service provider partners.

As the next phase of our program, today we’re announcing the launch of our OC Family to Family Campaign with a goal to help 2,000 families. Your gift to this campaign will be automatically put toward a $500 emergency debit card to help Orange County families who have had their income impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and are at risk of homelessness.

The Lyons-Smith Family Foundation is generously providing a dollar for dollar match during this campaign, up to $500,000 – so donate today and double your impact.

To make a donation to the OC Family to Family Campaign, please visit our GoFundMe page or text Family2Family to 51555.

If you are an individual or family in need of assistance or support, please visit www.211oc.org, text your zip code to 898-211, or call 2-1-1 to be connected with local health and human services resources.
