Pastor Mark Davis of St. Mark Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach presented a unique opportunity to his congregation of nearly 600 people to help end Orange County’s homeless crisis. He knew his community was generous, but he was not prepared for how significantly they would jump at this opportunity to make a difference.

Pastor Davis and his supporters responded quickly to help Orange County United Way’s United to End Homelessness’ House 30 Campaign which was an ambitious campaign to raise funding to house 30 homelessness individuals and households in just 30 days (August 1 – August 30).
