“Help Them Home” Giving Day
Giving Day 2020 was an incredible success! With your help, Families Forward more than doubled our goal and raised $210,250 to help end family homelessness in Orange County. 19 organizations collectively raised $1,789,854 to Help Them Home. Thank you to all who gave so generously and helped us unlock $65,000 in matching funds from the Families Forward Board of Directors, A Little Help Foundation and Decorative Arts Society. It provides hope during these uncertain times as families in need are facing additional challenges due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We couldn’t have done it without you!
A Giving Day for OC’s Homeless: 24 Hours. 18 Organizations. 1 Cause. April 22, 2020.
Can you imagine a future in which everyone in Orange County has a safe place to sleep every night?
We can. But we need your help.
That’s why Families Forward and 17 other homeless service providers in Orange County are coming together for a day of giving on April 22, 2020 to restore dignity and hope to homeless parents and children.
Your donation helps a child have a safe place to sleep tonight!
Who are the children we meet every day at Families Forward?
They are hopeful, innocent children who don’t always understand why their parents have lost their home. They just feel fear and uncertainty because they are moving from place to place, with no bed of their own and no place to have a normal life. Their parents are mostly facing an unexpected crisis that turned their lives upside down – whether it’s a job loss, medical issues or fracturing of a family.
How can you help?
With your support, Families Forward can move hundreds of children into immediate shelter, whether it’s a motel stay, locating an emergency shelter, or moving into one of our available homes for a short-term stay. Give now and you can make all these options possible for a local, homeless child today.
