In Orange County, to rent a one-bedroom apartment while earning minimum wage, you would need to work 131 hours per week. Coupled with the fact that the unemployment rate is at an all-time high, housing is a bigger issue than ever for Orange County residents. Add to this a unique challenge such as brest cancer, severe physical or mental illness, or being a victim of domestic violence or human trafficking. Few programs offer special services for these groups, including seniors living independently but beyond a working age. Grandma’s House of Hope emphasizes services for these uniquely challenge women.
