2019 Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week
November 16-24, 2019 is Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. This week draws attention to the issue and seriousness of hunger and homelessness in our communities, state and across the country. Even though the campaign is only a week-long, the lessons and programs started, can be a year-round initiative for all. In our community, United to End Homelessness remains steadfast in its goal to end homelessness for good in Orange County.
They currently house people through the WelcomeHomeOC program, which partners with landlords in OC to rent to people who are homeless with housing vouchers. The program is now expanding to former foster youth – individuals between the ages of 18 and 24, who have aged out of the foster care system and are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless.
