GHH provides compassionate and uplifting transitional care for uniquely challenged women, children and families in need in Orange County.

 

The Need

According to the 2011 Homeless PIT Count and Survey 6,939 people experience homeless night in Orange County. However with most statistics related to homelessness, including the PIT Count, it is generally acknowledged only a fraction of the actual numbers are reported. The number of people in Orange County received Cal WORKs cash assistance increased 20% in one year, rising to a monthly average enrollment of 52,528 recipients in 2009/10. Food Stamps enrollment jumped 37% during the same time period, on top of a 24% rise in 2008/09. Further, according to the 2011 Orange County Community Indicators Report, the hourly wage needed to rent a one-bedroom, fair market value, apartment in Orange County is $25.52, equivalent to $53,080 per year. In other words, households making minimum wage would have to work 130 hours per week to afford a one-bedroom apartment.

The GHH Transitional Housing Program specializes in serving uniquely challenged women who may have difficulty finding a program. These “invisible populations” include human trafficking victims, breast cancer patients, and women with severe mental and physical disabilities.
