Check out whats up with our community street outreach
In 2017 we have welcomed almost as many volunteers as burritos rolled!
This has been absolutely amazing considering we started in November 2015 with just 6 volunteers at our first event!
With so many awesome people wanting to join our community street outreach, we needed to make some changes in the RSVP process.
To make sure everyone can get their hands on our burritos, we have limited the number of volunteers and will have specific registration pages for each event going live at the beginning of each month.
Be sure to check out our website, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram & Twitter to stay updated with future volunteering opportunities!
Ready to run for burritos?
OCBP has been selected as the exclusive charity partner for the 2017 Color Vibe 5K coming to Orange County on August 19th!
A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to our organization so please help spread the word, or get a team of friends to run/walk/roll with you for this awesome event!
We'll be handing out waters and hanging out so come find us and say hi!
What we're cooking up next!
As you know, burritos are just the beginning.
Our community street outreach serves as a means to introduce the community to their homeless neighbors and break down the prejudices and negative stigmas that are often associated with the homeless.
In gaining support from the community, we can have a larger voice to push for countywide infrastructure and work towards actual long-term solutions rather than simply continuing to put band-aids on a much more complicated problem.
Outside of our monthly events, our team is positioned on Homelessness Taskforces with City and County officials and actively engages in collaborations with existing services to hand deliver resources where they are needed most.
We are so thankful to all of our volunteers and donors who have helped us along the way and are excited to have your continued support in our future endeavors developing affordable housing while advocating for policy focused on whole person care and the underlying causes of homelessness.
