A Coalition of the Leading Family Homeless Services Providers
in Orange County, California

FSC Leads Orange County to end Family Homelessness: Through strong partnerships, our member organizations ideate, implement and advocate for innovations throughout the system, making the FSC the primary driver towards ending a family’s housing crisis.

FSC functions as the “System” supporting the direct service providers

In an effort to ensure system-wide best practices for families in Orange County, the FSC focus and goals are to ensure families are able to access family shelters, prevention and diversion services as well as housing resources in an equitable, timely and coordinated manner. We do this through our collaborative partnerships, ongoing support, training and technical assistance of best-practices that we provide to our member agencies.
