Have you ever wanted to do something to help the homeless? We have an activity that is fun and a way to pay it forward. We are asking Orange County to give up the comfort of their beds for one night. Form your team and Camp it Forward to help our neighbors who have no place to call home.
Camp it Forward is a campaign created by Homeless Intervention Services of Orange County. It has two goals: raise awareness of homelessness and raise funds to provide housing and supportive service for families, individuals, and students. Homeless Intervention Services of Orange County has been helping the homeless get back on their feet for 32 years and we are not going to rest until everyone has a home.
Gather your friends, family, church group, scout pack, clubs, and form a team to participate in a new movement and raise funds to end homelessness in Orange County. #campitforward #endhomelessnessness #his_oc

Homeless Intervention Services of Orange County currently runs four programs to help people in need in our community. The Transitional Housing Program is primarily for families experiencing homelessness and, in most cases, in need of reunification. The second program provides housing and education for young men ages 18-24. It’s called CHESS (Combining Housing Education and Skills for Students). In our third program, Homeshare OC, we match homeless college students struggling to stay in school with senior homeowners. The pair shares housing in a mutually beneficial living arrangement. The fourth program is an outreach and referral program called Housing Connection. We collaborate with a network of community-based organizations to help the homeless, hungry, and abused find services that meet their immediate needs.
