Giving Day

Thank you to everyone who participated in Giving Day 2021! More than 400 donors contributed over $160,000 to Help Them Home. We are so grateful for your support!

A Giving Day for OC’s Homeless: 24 Hours. 20 Organizations. 1 Cause. April 28, 2021.

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 19 other homeless service providers in Orange County are coming together for a day of giving on April 28, 2021 to restore dignity and hope to homeless parents and children.

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.
