Building Brighter Futures for Orange County's Youth Tax ID 71-1047686


Every two hours, a child is born into poverty in Orange County.  That means only knowing the world through struggle, uncertainty, and hunger.  That also means joining an overwhelming population of impoverished families who already know this tragic reality all too well. In Orange County alone:

·         28,000 children who worry about where they will sleep tonight

·         121,000 children are living in unstable conditions

·         177,650 children are unsure of when their next meal will be

The Illumination Foundation is local, grassroots organization working to intervene and break the tragic cycle of homelessness in order to provide better lives for our county’s children.

In our short existence, we have helped take over 1,283 families off of the streets. Through our various medical, housing, and workforce development programs, we are proud to have provided the tools they need to create safe, sustainable homes.

Moving forward, and with your help, we hope to expand and continue “illuminating” the lives of our families and children.
