Village of Hope

The largest and most comprehensive housing development for the homeless in Orange County, the Village of Hope is located on a five-acre (two-hectare) site of the former Tustin Marine Corps Air Station in Tustin, California. A truly comprehensive facility, the shelter provides housing for 192 homeless men, women, and children and includes child care, health, job-training, and educational services on a single site. The product of a partnership between two nonprofits, HomeAid Orange County and the Orange County Rescue Mission, the US$33 million community asset was developed debt-free over 14 years, largely through in-kind and cash donations from homebuilders, architects, and engineers around the region.
