May 2022 Member Spotlight: Project Hope Alliance
Project Hope Alliance deploys a long-term, on-site intervention model for children, youth and their families experiencing homelessness, who face obstacles that prevent them from accessing resources, being a kid, and achieving educational and life goals. For children experiencing homelessness, Project Hope Alliance solves the unique issues that prevent them from achieving their full potential.
Mission: Ending the cycle of homelessness, one child at a time.
In 1989, Project Hope Alliance grew out of a schoolteacher’s passion for assisting local homeless children with their education – with her car serving as the first classroom. This personal outreach program soon became an organized undertaking called Project HOPE, which stood for “Homeless Outreach Program in Education.”
Project Hope Alliance is committed to providing homeless children and youth from kindergarten through age 24 with the tools and opportunities that they need to learn their way to a better tomorrow. In this work, they have spent the last 28 years developing a unique model of care, which includes effective education and housing stability program models that serve the needs of children experiencing homelessness in Orange County.
