United to End Homelessness
The United to End Homelessness initiative, empowered by United Way, is a powerful collaboration between Orange County’s top business, philanthropic, governmental, faith-based and non-profit leaders. It also depends on caring residents like you who agree that we must act now if we are to end our community’s homeless crisis. We are all working together to create long-term supportive housing to do more for those most in need.
United to End Homelessness is committed to reducing homelessness in Orange County to functional zero. This means that there will be services and housing available for every individual who may need them. We complement the work of the Orange County Commission to End Homelessness and Continuum of Care Board.
