Throughout our $70 million dollar renovation, we have have been able to make multiple donations of furniture, blankets, cribs and other items to different organizations around Orange County. You may recall in February, we donated 300 Blankets to Human Options, and yesterday we delivered blankets and cribs to two local organizations that were in need.
Canyon Acres Children & Family Services have been serving children throughout Southern California since 1980. They provide care and mental health services to over 300 children each day, and have opened their arms to abused and neglected children. Using professional expertise, love, and unlimited perseverance, Canyon Acres gives these children a future.
“The goal for all of ‘Canyon Acres’ programs is to help stabilize children mentally and emotionally, providing the possibility that one day they might move to a less-restrictive level of care. Ultimately, it is our goal to get all children into strengthened, permanent families – whether those families are biological families or adoptive families. Canyon Acres’ ability to move children into less and less restrictive environments as their functioning levels improve is seen as a model for agencies in the area. Canyon Acres provides real hope for kids – the hope for a permanent, loving family.”
Mercy House provides homeless prevention emergency services, transitional housing, and permanent housing, along with supportive services to homeless men, women, and children, living in Orange County. In the Winter months, Mercy House has an OC Cold Weather program in place, where they provide food, shelter, and services to the homeless. The blankets donated will provide warmth to those in need during these times.
