OC Burrito Project

In November 2015, our founders turned their passion for helping the homeless into a mechanism for change by inviting the community to join in monthly street outreach events rolling burritos and distributing necessity items to our homeless neighbors.

From that point on, The Orange County Burrito Project became a means to empower individuals in their own community to address the needs of their homeless neighbors.

Growing to triple its impact in just one year, for the years ahead, we plan on operating one of Orange County's premier full service homeless shelters. Implementing mental health and substance abuse programs, job and vocational skills training, legal services, as well as basic life skills support to create a pathway to self-sufficiency.

Utilizing street outreach events, we empower the community to take an active role engaging with the homeless.

Following our victory in 2016, bringing over 4,000 burritos to the homeless of Orange County, alongside thousands of bottles of water, goodie bags with toiletries & snacks, as well as nearly a thousand articles of clothing & pairs of shoes, we aim to double the frequency of our events and expand locations by June of 2017.

To adequately address the needs of the homeless, our long term goal is to provide Orange County with a whole person care facility by 2021. Implementing mental health and substance abuse programs, job and vocational skills training, legal services, as well as basic life skills support to create a pathway to self-sufficiency.

The Orange County Burrito Project hold events on the third Friday of each month inside of 4th Street Market in Santa Ana, California.

The assembly portion of each event starts around 6:30pm and goes until approximately 8:00pm. The distribution portion o

Our mission is to empower the community to become proactive agents of change, focusing on the multifaceted issues contributing to homelessness, creating a path towards self-sufficiency.
