TRUTH: never, ever give up on someone, because God is mighty to save.

When I hear ‘the sky is the limit,’ I refuse that limitation when I know there are foot prints on the moon. With the success of the Orange County Rescue Mission and its services for the surrounding community, my vision is to extend this excellence of service as far as our influence will allow and as faithfully as the support that backs our efforts will prevail.
The scope of services that we have…
Loving the lost during #lent
Melissa, our Volunteer Coordinator, serves meals to the homeless at the Civic Center in Santa Ana. You can meet the men, women & children we serve on the streets and provide them with a hot meal too. Use this meaningful season of Lent and the coming of Easter to shift your focus toward the service of those that are seeking new life & new beginnings.

Good friend of the mission, Stephanie Jackson, stopped by to discuss some future exciting projects with the Development team and caught a buggy full of kiddos out for a ride! We love how far our family extends in that our volunteers and donors care so deeply for our families on campus.
Big things to come and we couldn’t do it without you!

Caring looks like this:
Today our friends Kathy & Vince from Wescom Credit Union WeCare Foundation paid us a visit and dropped off a generous donation of clothing. Thank you for providing such an essential need!
Day #2 of #lent :: #givingstories #ocrm #rescueoc #wescom #creditunion #donors
Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of the Easter season.
Typically those from a Roman Catholic or Protestant tradition use the next 40 days to position themselves for the celebration of Christ’s death and resurrection by first sacrificing a daily comfort in their own lives in response to the sacrifice Jesus made when he died on the cross.
Both Easter and Lent involve some spiritual and…
Tell us: what are you doing for #lent?
Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of the Easter season, and as most people position themselves for the Spring celebration of new life in Jesus we want to give you opportunities to participate in the new lives of men, women and children at the Orange County Rescue Mission.
Day #1 of Lent: check out our ‘urgent needs’ list and help provide basic necessities for the families that are working through our programs like Whitney and her son Mikey: http://bit.ly/1gaDFVf

I have dedicated myself to the investment of transformation in every man, woman and child that enter our doors. With an 18-24 month time frame, these men and women have to see the Rescue Mission program as a life time investment for themselves too. The Orange County Rescue Mission does not merely operate under behavior modification; do this, don’t do that. We also don’t simply warehouse people…
Make your sacrifice meaningful, not miserable.
The season of #lent begins tomorrow: what are you planning on giving up??? Traditionally, Christians choose something to give up during Lent. Their sacrifice is a response to the sacrifice Jesus made when he was crucified on the cross. Make this year meaningful by partnering with OCRM to see new life in the men, women and children that leave their past on the streets and seek new life at the Village of Hope.

In her own words…
We love sharing tear-jerking stories of trials and triumph that we get to witness every day. But its even better hearing them from the heart of our student residents.
Arrianna is a mom in our program who shared these words: “…lives are not only saved, but healed and transformed. What a blessing it is to be here and be a part of all the restoration and beauty.”
It is powerful to see broken lives restored that in turn participate in the transformation of others around them. Join us in praying for Arrianna and her family and all of the women she influences around her in our program.

Beauty, art and creativity are a critically dynamic element in the elevation of those with broken spirits.
One of the most frequent comments about the Orange County Rescue Mission’s campuses is how tastefully picturesque they are. We intentionally design our programs around state of the art aesthetics. The Ahmanson Family has even played a generous role in outfitting our facilities with an…
