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.

This Month’s Project is….

Fall Fun Boxes! 

Help our kids have a fun and festive Fall! 

Oftentimes homelessness is a barrier to truly enjoying the wonderful things Fall has to offer. By putting together a box of Fall Fun items, you can help our kids take part in all the wonderful things this season has to offer. 

There are two ways to make a box!

  1. Stop by our office anytime during the month of September and October and pick up a blank box(s) to decorate and fill. 

  1. Use your own shoe box/bucket, anything to make your creation!
