Your investment in Friendship Shelter means more today than ever before. Through the generosity of our community, last year alone we touched more than 700 people in one of our programs, and helped 94 people move out of homelessness and into permanent housing. 98% of our clients retained their permanent housing without a return to homelessness. In other words, they are Home for Good.


Friendship Shelter's vision is to end homelessness in south Orange County through permanent housing solutions. But that's just the beginning...While ending homelessness is essential to the overall health of our community, helping our clients achieve housing stability is critical.


Each year we help approximately 100 people move off the streets or out of shelter and into permanent housing. Every dollar we raise will ensure that the next 100 people we house will have the resources needed to stay safe and stable in their new home.

Will you join us today and help welcome more people Home for Good?

Thanks to you, we've surpassed our original goal of $1 million! But our work is far from over. Fueled by the generosity of our community, we've increased our goal to $1.3 million to broaden our focus to include key prevention efforts. We’re committed to keeping the tenants in our housing program stable in their housing without a return to homelessness, while preventing more individuals from falling into homelessness due to a loss of housing.

L.A. County homeless services workers can’t afford housing themselves, study finds

"Front line workers essential to solving Los Angeles County’s homelessness crisis do not make enough money to afford housing themselves, leading to burnout and high turnover, a new report has found.

According to the study, the low pay places financial, emotional and health burdens on workers already facing hazardous and stressful conditions. They eventually leave for other careers, creating staffing shortages that ultimately affect the quality of care given to people experiencing homelessness."
