Consider $20 a month?

We are very appreciative of everyone who supports our work in helping the needy. For us to continue, we are in need of recurring monthly monetary donations to support our ongoing work. Any amount, even $20 dollars a month, will enable us to continue helping the homeless.

Thank you Bisnar Chase!

A big THANK YOU to Bisnar Chase Injury Law firm, for their incredible donations and support of CTH for the last five years.

Shoes Needed

A good pair of shoes can make a world of difference to the homeless. We have a big need for shoe donations, specifically closed toes shoes. Sneakers are ideal. (No heels.)

"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".

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.

Sleeping Bags Needed

Do you have a sleeping bag that you haven't used recently? Consider donating it to CTH.

How You Can Help
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."
