OC GATEWAY TO HOUSING

A Start for a Brighter Tomorrow

Our mission is to change the lives of homeless families by providing them with
the encouragement and the tools for achieving self-sufficiency.

OC Gateway to Housing (OCGH)  was founded in 1981 to address the seemingly simple needs of homeless families. At this time, providing just the tangibles – food, housing and clothing appeared to be enough. We quickly realized that much more was needed.

For over three decades, OCGH has evolved into a multifaceted transitional housing program addressing the tangible and intangible needs – from housing to counseling. As one of the oldest housing providers in Orange County, OCGH serves more than 100 individuals each year. OCGH provides supportive services such as intake and assessment, case management, nutrition, employment service (through collaborators), adult education (through collaborators), training in budgeting and money management, and assistance in securing permanent housing. Read More About OCGH.
