Project L.I.F.E.

Project L.I.F.E. is a transitional shelter for sixteen homeless families referred by the Orange County Department of Social Services. Families stay in their own furnished apartments and are given bedding, bath, kitchen and household items.

Eligible families may live at Project L.I.F.E. for six months. The Facility provides Families with 24 hour security and support. Families receive on-site case management and child care; transportation; after-school and weekend activities; advocacy and referrals as necessary; and assistance in locating affordable permanent housing.
