THRIVE’s Growing Impact

With the spring college semester only a few weeks old,

our young men’s THRIVE home residents have settled in well and are learning to work and live together in a supportive manner. Equally exciting, our THRIVE home site for young women is providing much needed stability and a platform toward success for our first young lady who recently overcame homelessness to continue her education as a transfer into Cal State Fullerton. Through the kindness, generosity and support of a host family has shared their living space for our young women. While the eventual goal remains to secure an actual home for young women, we remain very appreciative of our host family who has stepped up in the interim. OC United’s THRIVE initiative continues to grow and make a positive impact.

Young lives are touched and positively impacted through the support of others. We hope that you share our vision and desire to instill hope and make a difference by directly donating funds or volunteering your time!
