211OC Recognized for Helping with Homeless Connect
Supervisor Andrew Do recognized 211OC staff Tim, Mayra, Jackie and Linda for their help with our Homeless Connect event at the Courtyard Transitional Shelter in Santa Ana a few weeks ago.

211OC partnered with Supervisor Do’s office and the County to put on the first ever Homeless Connect event where we brought various services and meals directly to the homeless. There were over 1,000 meals served and over 600 in attendance. We were able to present the services in a fun and interactive way that led to a very successful event.

Thank you to all those who partnered in putting this event together and continue to provide services to help our homeless get back on their feet.
