Orange County United Way recognizes that access to stable housing can be the foundation for a successful future, and is a critical component of family stability and community success. Establishing a permanent home is the catalyst toward academic achievement, a healthier lifestyle, and a steadier income.

You can help us FACE homelessness by collecting home essentials for families in need as they get back on their feet and move into their own homes.

Collecting items to assemble Welcome Home Baskets is an easy approach to offer a volunteer opportunity onsite or offsite of the workplace, home or social/faith based gathering. A United Way representative would be delighted to attend your assembly project to discuss aspects of our local work in the area Housing; specifically relating to our 10 year goal to cut the percentage of homeless or housing-insecure children in half by year 2024.

Opportunities to visit an Orange County United Way Rapid Rehousing partner for basket assembly and partner tour can also be scheduled.

Please access the below link for a full list of items for your Welcome Home Basket!
