I am a case manager for a national non-profit organization, StandUp for Kids, here in OC! At StandUp for Kids, we work with youth at risk of homelessness or that are currently experiencing homelessness that are ages 12-24, and connect them to life changing resources such as basic needs, tutoring, mentoring, employment navigation, and housing navigation. I am the case manager for the Rapid Rehousing program, which aims to get our 18-24 year old youth in to housing (rooms, apartments) as soon as possible. StandUp for kids acts as a third party and pays for 3 gradient months of rent to help support our youth on their journey to self sufficiency.
If you know of any landlords who would like to work with us to help house our youth, or if you have any rooms for rent in OC, please feel free to reach out! Ideally, these are rooms no more than $800 and allow a pet or a child in some cases. For apartments, ideally this would be a studio or a one bedroom, no more than $1,500. Thank you for supporting our youth and giving them a chance. I have provided my contact info below.
