Valerie and her daughter, Samantha, spent the early months of the pandemic living in her car, trying to stay safe from both the pandemic and an abusive husband. She was scared and needed help. Because of donors like you, Families Forward was able to immediately secure emergency housing for Valerie and Samantha.
You can ease the hardships faced by so many local families by making a donation today.
An astounding number of families have lost the means to support themselves as they experienced layoffs, furloughs and other COVID-19 related financial crises. In response, Families Forward is providing desperately needed housing assistance to families across Orange County who are struggling to care for their most basic needs. Your donations provide families with long lasting housing security through individualized programs and services.
We hope you'll join us and give children like Samantha a safe place to sleep tonight, and every night.


Sincerely,
Madelynn Hirneise
Chief Executive Officer
