We Are Expanding Our Service Locations
We are excited to announce that starting July 1st , Human Options will now be providing services out of three additional Family Resource Centers (FRCs) ; totaling eight FRCs throughout Orange County!

We are grateful for the opportunity to expand our geographic outreach in our community and make services more accessible for survivors. Having access to services is even more critical as restrictions are lifting and survivors have more opportunities to reach out for help.

Keep Our Families Safe at Home Update-
We Are Almost There!
Through our communities generous support, we are 95% to our goal of raising $250,000!
There are still two weeks left to help us unlock the full $20,000 match
and reach our goal!

Since social distancing began, your support has made it possible to serve over 2,500 children and adults . Thank you to those who have made this possible!

Although restrictions are starting to lift, there is still a lot of work to be done. We have already seen an influx of calls to our 24/7 crisis hotline, overwhelming requests for legal advocacy services now that the courts have reopened, and our residential sites have filled to capacity. A s survivors have more opportunities to reach out, we anticipate the need for services to continue to increase.

 We need your help to continue to keep families safe.
Adriana's Story on Facing Relationship Violence in the Midst of COVID-19
There are often many barriers victims face when trying to make the brave decision to leave an abusive relationship and our current pandemic has made survivors even more vulnerable.

Adriana shares her experience making this difficult decision:

“Being trapped in isolation with my abuser, I was becoming more afraid as the abuse continued to escalate. It came to the point that I was so afraid for the safety of my children and myself, I left without money or a plan.

I am so thankful that I was connected to Human Options’ Second Step transitional housing program. It has been hugely beneficial - I have been able to limit the number of people we're in contact with, while still benefiting from being part of a community who are all experiencing the same thing, and accessing resources provided by Human Options.

I am really, really grateful to those who have supported Human Options during this pandemic. Living here has been life-changing for me and my kids. ”
