Why Friendship Shelter?


Day after day our team chooses Friendship Shelter, committing their time, energy, and hearts to our community.

They come to work every day ready to change lives and end homelessness. We hope you'll take a few moments to see some of the faces of our staff. They haven’t missed a beat even in the most challenging of times and continue to show up to work with our community’s most vulnerable neighbors.

We often say that Friendship Shelter's secret sauce is our team. They're an exceptional group of people who bring a "whatever it takes" approach to ending homelessness in South Orange County, one person at a time. This work is far from easy, and the support of our community is so important. Thank you for standing with us! Your generosity, your shares, and your compassion makes our team’s work possible.

We're poised for success for the rest of 2022 and beyond. Will you help us meet our goal by June?
