Colette’s Children’s Home is a nonprofit organization based in Huntington Beach, CA that has provided housing and supportive services to homeless women and children for the past 20 years.
CCH began renting a two-bedroom apartment in the city of Huntington Beach in 1998, housing up to 6 homeless women and children each night. The agency now owns and operates 16 Homeless Shelter Program and permanent housing sites. As of January 2017, we have the capacity to serve up to 300 homeless women and children in our shelters at any given point in time. Our shelters are located in the cities of Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley, Anaheim, and Placentia.
We recognize that, acting alone, we will not be able to completely eliminate homelessness in Orange County, but we are creating a replicable model of systemic change that impacts the lives of the people we serve.
