Orange Coast Interfaith Shelter (OCIS) was founded in 1981 to address the seemingly simple needs of homeless families. At this time, providing just the tangibles - food, housing and clothing appeared to be enough. We quickly realized that much more was needed.

For almost three decades, OCIS has evolved into a multifaceted transitional housing program addressing the tangible and intangible needs – from shelter to counseling. As one of the oldest and largest shelters in Orange County, OCIS serves more than 1,000 individuals each year. OCIS is a transitional housing program with supportive services such as intake and assessment, case management, nutrition, employment service (through collaborators), adult education (through collaborators), training in budgeting and money management, and assistance in securing permanent housing.
