Welcome to the Clothing The Homeless website.
We are a Christ-based organization in Irvine, California, with a heart for serving the homeless population in Orange County through a mobile clothing distribution system. Our goal is to meet the needs of the homeless men and women with adequate clothing and necessities for different seasons and weather.

Clothing the Homeless 10 year Anniversary
March is the 10 year anniversary of Clothing the Homeless serving the homeless of Orange County in the name of Jesus Christ. A celebration was held on Sunday the 23rd at Journey Christian Church in which some of the many people who serve in this ministry described how God was working in the people being serves as well as the servers. The video was played to show what it is like at a distribution. Go to our Facebook page to watch the video. Thank God for Sue Sonnenberg, without whom this ministry would have never been started and served literally thousands of homeless men and women. Thank you for your dedication Sue!

We are always looking for new volunteers to join us in our efforts to serve the homeless men and women of Orange County. We are asking new volunteers to consider committing to serve once a month for 4-6 months. This will give you a chance to really experience the different people and locations we serve.
Painless Clothing the Homeless Fundraiser!
As you may know, Clothing the Homeless is only funded by donations. There are many expenses like rental on the storage units and purchase of certain clothes (like underwear) that we do not receive as donations. There is an easy way you can donate to CTH that does not cost you anything. If you have a Ralph’s grocery card, all you have to do is designate Clothing the Homeless and your charity of choice and Ralphs will donate money to CTH every time you purchase grocery’s and swipe your Ralphs card. Best of all, there is no cost to you.

Clothing the Homeless was honored with a Grant.
Clothing the Homeless (CTH) was recently blessed with a $500 grant from The Mentor Network. CTH was one of three charities in the U.S. to received the donation. This donation came at a time when we could really use the money to cover some of our expenses, like the storage units in which we keep and sort the clothes. Thank you to Jessica Bollong and The Mentor Network for this generous donation. To find out more about The Mentor Network and their donation to Clothing the Homeless, CLICK HERE.
