A day at the Coalition
Coalition for the Homeless provides services to more than 650 homeless men, women, and children every day. Recently, someone asked us exactly what that means…
Our goal is to return our residents to self-sufficiency through case management, counseling, job skills training, educational opportunities, substance abuse recovery meetings, life skills guidance, etc.
While clients work to reestablish productive lives, we provide them safe housing, nutritious meals, daycare, and a variety of other services for their children geared to breaking the cycle of homelessness.
Between our two campuses and three facilities, there’s a lot going on each day. Here’s a snapshot of what happened yesterday:
- 707 people – 227 of whom were children – had a safe place to sleep,
- 110 families were able to stay together during their time of crisis,
- Over 800 meals were served,
- 16 youngsters attended our onsite daycare and VPK program,
- 65 men and 7 women continued their paths to sobriety in our First Steps Substance Abuse Recovery Program,
- about 10 residents received job search assistance at the onsite Goodwill Job Search Resource Center,
- and close to 50 adults visited the onsite Orange County Public Schools LifeStrides classroom.
We couldn’t do any of this without YOU! Our supporters touch the lives of our residents through various projects and activities every day.
