Project Dignity

We are a non-profit, volunteer organization founded in 1991.  Our purpose is to provide physical, emotional & spiritual assistance to the homeless living in low income residential motels in Orange County, with special attention given to children, families and the elderly.

We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, in a compassionate and caring manner.  We orient the volunteers to love and care for the people we serve, who are in great need.  Our main function is to love our homeless friends.

It is our desire to provide whatever assistance we can to improve the quality of their lives with an eye on helping them get out of the motels.    It is our mission to assist them and ease their daily burdens.  It is our goal to help them successfully move into permanent housing.

It’s not our intent to keep families comfortably in the motels, but to help them find the resources, and confidence to get out.  We do this while keeping in mind that all families develop at their own rates.  Some families will require more help, for longer than others.  Each case is unique and we treat our clients with the dignity they deserve—as individuals.  

We particularly wish to give special attention to the children we meet along our daily path.  We will always strive to provide all assistance with love, compassion, humility and dignity.

We desire to help, without over serving.  We desire to serve with wisdom.

Serve the People, Inc.

Serve the People’s Mission Statement: “To provide for the physical, mental, emotional and mentoring needs of the poor, children, sick, needy, uneducated, oppressed and lost people. To serve people regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, or gender with love, compassion, and generosity.”


Orange County, home to some of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the nation, is one of the most expensive places to live in the U.S. Despite its affluent reputation, Orange County has significant pockets of poverty where low-income households struggle to afford many basic needs, including nutrition and medical coverage.

Serve the People (STP) provides food, clothing, medical care, and legal assistance, giving a hand up, and not just a hand-out. Since its founding in 2008, STP has centered its programs on the needs of the greater Santa Ana community, providing a trusted resource for people who have nowhere else to go for food and healthcare. STP’s services allow low-income households to temporarily allocate their precious resources towards other household expenses – like housing and transportation

South County Outreach

South County Outreach has worked since 1989 to assist South Orange County residents in need. Initially, that support focused on providing food. In 1991, the focus expanded to include homeless prevention, through the addition of a Rental and Utility Assistance program. The emphasis of the program was stabilization of housing for residents facing a shortfall in a monthly payment. In 1994, the first condominium was purchased to support a homeless family. The number of condominiums has grown to 17. Families in the Transitional Housing Program successfully move from homelessness to permanent housing through a short-term housing solution with emphasis on intensive case management. In 2014, South County Outreach expanded housing stabilization efforts with the addition of a Rapid Rehousing program. Rapid Rehousing allows South County Outreach to assist more households without the financial obligation of purchasing more housing inventory. The mission remains the same, "Preventing Hunger and Homelessness by Helping People Help Themselves."
