Mission Statement

The Illumination Foundation (IF) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3), non-denominational, grassroots organization that addresses the crisis of homelessness in Orange County through integrated services that provide appropriate solutions.

Description

Experts on homelessness within Orange County agree that it has reached crisis proportions, and there are not enough resources designated for chronic and emergency programs. With that understanding, IF was founded in late 2007 to effectively lower the barriers for Orange County's homeless population to access existing resources and services. In July 2008 IF launched the "Pre-Transitional Housing and Wrap-Around Program", a comprehensive program that houses and supports homeless families with children in motels in Orange County. IF was established within the UC Irvine Health Care Executive MBA Program as a non-profit public charity organization. Today, IF's governing board consists of community leaders in medicine, nursing, social work, information technology, and education. Illuminate lives by bridging the gaps in existing services for the most underserved to break or prevent the cycle of homelessness in Orange County.

We offer a low-entry threshold to provide a safety net for all homeless families with children.

We connect homeless or at-risk families and individuals with services they are eligible to receive.

We foster rehabilitation by empowering adults to become self-sufficient; and inspiring children to grow into independent, productive adults.
