Friendship Shelter works to end homelessness in our community, one person at a time through two housing-focused shelters and a permanent supportive housing program. Our staff works with each person who walks through our doors to assess and source the most appropriate housing solution to permanently end their homelessness. 

Every man and woman who walks through the doors of one of our two shelter programs works with our housing navigation staff to find the most appropriate permanent housing for them. Click below to learn more. 

We started our first permanent supportive housing program in 2014 housing our first 18 men and women. Today, it is our largest program with 87 people housed throughout southern Orange County. Click below to read more about the process.
