Let's work together to end family homelessness in Orange County! Project Hope Alliance is participating in Homeless Families Count as an assessment site from Tuesday, May 23, through Thursday, May 25, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day. Members of our staff have been trained on how to administer the screening tool that will be used to capture family homelessness. Keep reading for more information on Family Assessment Week and how you can get involved.
- If your family is without shelter and sleeping on the streets or in your car, Family Assessment Week is an opportunity to connect with agencies to reduce the time your family spends without housing.
- Family Assessment Week is a countywide effort to assist families who are experiencing homelessness in Orange County. This information will be used by a cohort of agencies that provide homeless services. The mission of this cohort is to end homelessness for children and families in Orange County. The assessment will be used to work with agencies to work to reduce the time a family experiences homelessness by matching families to housing opportunities as they become available.
- You will also receive a $10 food gift card for your participation.
Who should participate? Families with minor children who are experiencing homelessness (living in the car, on the streets, motel/hotel, doubled/tripled-up).
