Orange County Rescue Mission

The men, women and children who enter the gates of the Orange County Rescue Mission come from many walks of life and are all wounded in different ways. Some are highly educated, many are survivors of abuse, addiction and abandonment. None of these people ever imagined they’d be homeless and they all need  help. The people who come to OCRM could be your neighbor, your coworker or perhaps a member of your own family. The goal is to treat each person with respect and dignity. At OCRM, they  prayerfully consider how they will implement an Individual Treatment Plan for those who come to them for help.

SageView Foundation has come along side OCRM to help provide program funding and paid time away from work for the Irvine Office to volunteer. In January, 2020 the teambuilding event at the National Conference will serve to replenish the stock in the food pantry at the mission.
