Ways to give to GHH in the coming months.

Sponsor a child!
Sponsor a child 
Children that rely on the free and reduced lunch programs at their schools go hungry on the weekends! For just $30 a month you can sponsor a motel child to have weekend meals when the school cafeterias are closed.

Host a Food Drive!
Spirit of Hope  
GHH is always looking for an enthusiastic group to host a food drive. The food you collect feeds hungry children right here in Orange County.

Nana's Needs!

We are always in need of food donations and other necessities. Consider donating items like canned goods, peanut butter and healthy cereals. All foods should be nonperishable and in non-breakable containers. (No glass, please!)

Grandma's House of Hope



Grandma's House of Hope has had an amazing year of growth in 2013! Looking back on last year, we are thrilled to share with you some of the incredible accomplishments that GHH achieved through our mission to help those most vulnerable in our community.

We opened the doors of HopeWorks! Education and Enrichment Center (HWEEC) at a new, low-income, affordable housing development for at-risk youth.

Volunteers and staff spent Martin Luther King, Jr. Day participating in service activities, building shelves and packaging food.

Thanks to all our helpers from Wells Fargo and Orange County Church of Christ.

Happy volunteers packing food!

Wells Fargo volunteers build much-needed shelving.

We added 3 new homes, doubled our bed capacity and provided emergency housing and services to human trafficking survivors and homeless women with cancer and other severe medical challenges.

GHH was honored with a seat on the Anti-Human Trafficking Congressional Advisory Committee with Representative Ed Royce and participated in a Congressional Hearing.



 Internship and Volunteer Opportunities

New internship opportunities have been posted on our website. There are many opportunities to help in our office while earning college credit! Get Involved!

GHH launched "Hands of Hope," our new Women's Auxiliary Group.  

Call us today and find out how you can get involved! (714) 558-8600



Outreach on Halloween night provided a safe environment for motel families through our Safe Harvest Event and this year reached over 600 children! 1200 meals were served that night!


We provided nearly 1,000 backpacks and school supplies to at risk youth for the new school year and our Nana's Kidz program surpassed 1.3 million meals for homeless children.
