On April 28, the Newport Beach-based Orange County Community Foundation (OCCF) hosted Help Them Home – a collaborative Giving Day designed to combat homelessness and its devastating impact on our community.

During the 24-hour online effort, 3,793 donors helped raise a record $2,163,132 for 20 Orange County-based nonprofits offering programs and services to help community members experiencing homelessness achieve stability and lasting independence.

As the wide-ranging fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disproportionately impact the community’s most vulnerable individuals and families, these donations come at a crucial time.
