Since 1986, Pathways of Hope has led a community effort to end homelessness for our struggling neighbors in North Orange County. Through different types of shelter, transitional housing, and permanent housing for families and individuals, Pathways of Hope has become a leader in housing services in North Orange County, ending homelessness for hundreds of our fellow community members and neighbors in need.



Through our Hope’s Corner community, located in the heart of Fullerton, we reserve apartment units for families and individuals who need additional time to overcome extreme barriers to finding permanent housing. We work at a deeper level with these households to overcome housing barriers such as economic challenges to help our Hope’s Corner residents secure and maintain permanent housing.


We provide consultation services and resources to people on the brink of homelessness to help our neighbors stay housed and to provide options to keep them from entering the homeless services system. We work with households to find practical solutions, including finding family resources, sourcing more affordable housing options, and linking to other available resources. When resources are available, we provide rental assistance in order to prevent eviction due to economic challenges


Rapid Re-housing provides Service Navigation and Rental Assistance resources to quickly and efficiently move homeless individuals and families from shelter or from literal homelessness back to sustainable, permanent housing. This housing model also provides a variety of support services to ensure that each household is able to maintain their housing never become homeless again.


Permanent Supportive Housing Services are reserved for community members experiencing Chronic Homelessness (regular and frequent episodes of homelessness while struggling with a physical or mental disability). This housing model is designed to end homelessness by providing permanent housing and supportive services. Residents can retain their housing and supportive services as long as necessary to ensure that they never return to homelessness.



Pathways of Hope operates 106 family Shelter Beds across North Orange County. Our shelters provide safety and stability to our community’s most vulnerable dual and single-parent households. Our case managers work alongside the residents at our shelters and guide these families back to housing stability over 30-45 days.
