The staff at Friendship Shelter often refer to our team as the organization's "secret sauce." What sets us apart are these individuals who show up to work each day, ready to make a difference in our community by helping our most vulnerable neighbors experiencing homelessness find permanent home. 

Friendship Shelter is a non-profit homeless services agency founded in 1988 and dedicated to ending homelessness in South Orange County, one person at a time. Friendship Shelter operates a full spectrum of services to end homelessness, including street outreach, emergency shelter, housing navigation, financial assistance, and permanent housing with supportive services.  We believe in a housing-first and harm reduction approach and value the unique experience of each client we serve.  All of our programs employ trauma-informed principles and are housing-focused, low-barrier and client-centered. 


We are committed to diversity in our workforce and endeavor to create a work experience that is inclusive, meaningful, and effective at ending homelessness. Friendship Shelter does complete background checks upon offer of employment but invites individuals with criminal history to apply.
