Everybody needs transportation.

The Need

Do you think that you would be able to do your job if you didn’t have a car?

Off the top of your head, do you know your bus route to work or to the grocery store? Could you keep your job if you had to uber to and fro every day?

These are questions former-foster youth, those experiencing homelessness, and our other program participants face every day.

Donate Today

This year, we invite you to donate to our Transportation Fund. Every year, OC United staff and volunteers drive 20,000+ miles, use over 1,300+ gallons of gas (over $7,500), and spend over 700 hours in the car.

Navigating Life Together

The time and resources that we spend doing “normal, life things” together matters.

At OC United, whole-person care means that our program participants can access every resource they need. Your donation will help people get to:

  • Doctors Appointments
  • School, Pre-School
  • Job Interviews
  • Case Management
  • Therapy
  • Program Activities
  • Urgent Care / Hospital
  • Errands and Groceries
  • Social Services Appointments
  • Driving Lessons

If you are interested, contact Amy Gaw at amyg@ocunited.org.

What is Giving Tuesday?

GivingTuesday is on Tuesday November 29th, 2022!

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

Join the movement and give – each Tuesday and every day – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in your local community.

It’s a simple idea: whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to contribute toward building the better world we all want to live in.
