Monthly Service Project

As a volunteer with Project Hope Alliance, you are joining our Visible Army. You are bringing visibility, awareness, and HOPE to over 30,000 youth experiencing homeless across Orange County. 

Welcome to PHA’s Visible Army


Volunteers make a huge difference in the lives of the youth served by Project Hope Alliance. Since we cannot volunteer together in person for a while, we are so excited to provide you and your whole family with monthly projects you can do at home #forthekids.

* PHA is happy to sign off on your student’s community service hours for this project. Just bring your form when you drop off what you made.
