Homelessness Initiative

Hope & Dignity through Meaningful Employment

Donate

WE PROVIDE RELATIONSHIP, BELONGING, &
PREPARATION FOR MEANINGFUL EMPLOYMENT

Our primary vehicle is a faith-based, life-skills training that meets in local shelters called Jobs for Life (JfL). JfL empowers those experiencing homelessness to rediscover purpose, value, and hope through the prospect of employment & stability within the context of relationships.

Jobs for Life

Uplifting humanity through the dignity of work

We use a combination of job and life skills curriculum alongside relational connection with mentors (aka Champions). OC United’s homelessness initiative serves in 3+ local shelters.
