A Start for a Brighter Tomorrow

Since 1981 our mission is to change the lives of homeless families by providing them with the encouragement and the tools for achieving self-sufficiency.

OC Gateway to Housing (OCGH)  was founded in 1981 to address the seemingly simple needs of homeless families. At that time, providing just the tangibles – food, housing and clothing appeared to be enough, but we quickly realized that much more was needed.

For almost 40 years, OCGH has evolved into a multifaceted transitional housing program addressing the tangible and intangible needs – from housing to counseling. As one of the oldest housing providers in Orange County, California, OCGH provides supportive services such as case management, nutrition training, on-site mental health therapy, subsidized child care, training in budgeting and money management, and assistance in securing permanent housing. Read More About OCGH.
