Grandma's House of Hope mission is to Empower the Invisible Populations of Orange County by targeting those who truly slip between the cracks of other programs, with a specific focus on serving those who are ineligible for or who have significant difficulty accessing other organizations' services.

GHH operates three programs: Rescued and Restored Housing Program, Nana's Kidz and HopeWorks! Education and Enrichment Center. Our GHH's Rescued and Restored Housing Program offers emergency, bridge, transitional and long-term supportive housing as well as food to prepare three meals a day, services to meet basic needs, care coordination, case management/advocacy, counseling, workforce development, 12-step programs and individualized care to homeless women, with or without very young children, and homeless men; our Nana's Kidz program provides healthy meals to homeless and unstably housed children and families on weekends and during school breaks; and our HopeWorks! Education and Enrichment Center (HWEEC) program offers after-school programs and adult education to 165 low-income housing residents in Anaheim. Collectively through these programs, we fill gaps in basic needs by providing housing, food, trauma-informed care and enrichment activities to 3,750 people in Orange County every year.
