Financial aid is needed

Financial donations are critical for us to purchase basics such as underwear, socks and more, that are in high demand for those living on the streets. We are usually their only source for such essential items.

"Ninja Runs"

The Covid pandemic and restrictions have impacted all of us.

We've been fortunate to have our generous sponsors and other big-hearted individuals continue to donate backpacks, clothing and other items. Since many of our past distribution sites were closed due to Covid, we had to think of new ways to distribute clothing and other necessities to the increasing number of people living on the streets. For most of this year, our Director Mitch and a few other dedicated volunteers have conducted impromptu "Ninja Runs". (The name was coined by our long time supporter Pastor Steve Phillips from Journey Church.)

For our Ninja runs, we fill backpacks with clothing and other necessities. We load the van with these backpacks, along with sweaters, jackets, etc. We drive to areas in Costa Mesa, Santa Ana, Anaheim, Stanton, and Riverside to distribute these items directly to people living on the streets. We've been able to serve over 600 individuals with some basic necessities to help them survive on the streets.

We are grateful for all your monetary, clothing and other items donated to help make these runs possible.

Shoes Needed

A good pair of shoes can make a world of difference to the homeless. We have a big need for shoe donations.

Amazing Volunteers

We rely 100% on volunteers from all faiths and backgrounds to help at distributions and our "Ninja Runs".

Quote from Cathy at MHA

"I can't thank you enough for your donations to our agency today. The donation was incredibly generous. I hope that you did enjoy giving as much as I enjoy all the hope and comfort these clothes will bring to the people I serve every day."
