Mission Statement

The mission of Grandma’s House of Hope (GHH) is to Empower the Invisible Populations of Orange County by targeting those who truly slip between the cracks of other programs, with a specific focus on serving those who are ineligible for, or who have significant difficulty accessing, other organization's services. GHH provides housing, food, workforce development and enrichment activities to Orange County's most disadvantaged and oppressed community members.

Background Statement

Grandma's House of Hope (GHH) is led by Founder and Chief Executive Officer Je'net Kreitner, who started the organization in 2004 as a grassroots emergency shelter for homeless women after successfully overcoming her own experiences with human trafficking and homelessness. Since then, GHH continues to extend its reach and expand its scope of services, targeting the most marginalized, uniquely challenged and deeply impoverished women, children and men throughout Orange County. Over the past 14 years, GHH has expanded from serving 10 women with emergency shelter in 2004 to providing more than 3,600 women, men, seniors, children and families with housing, food, workforce development and enrichment activities. GHH is known among its partners and throughout Orange County as the program that says YES when so many others say no. GHH fills gaps in basic needs by providing support necessary for women, men and families to focus on breaking free from violence and abuse, setting and achieving their own goals, healing from trauma, stabilizing their health, obtaining permanent housing and transforming their lives. 

GHH operates three programs: our Rescued and Restored Housing Program provides emergency, safe haven, transitional and long-term supportive housing as well as food to prepare three meals a day, services to meet basic needs, care coordination, case management/advocacy, counseling, workforce development, 12-step programs and individualized, trauma-informed care to homeless individuals; Nana’s Kidz supplies healthy meals to homeless and unstably housed children and families; and HopeWorks! Education and Enrichment Center offers workforce development and afterschool programming to very low-income families. Collectively, through these programs, GHH addresses food, housing and other basic needs of nearly 4,000 low-income and at-risk individuals each year. 

Impact Statement

Since the organization was founded in 2004, GHH has provided more than two million meals to unstably housed children, outreached to more than 20,000 homeless, and rescued and restored more than 2,000 homeless women, children and men to permanently improve their life circumstances and break the cycle of poverty, incarceration, homelessness and abuse. Last year alone, GHH delivered more than 187,000 meals directly to low-income and homeless or unstably housed children and families, conducted outreach to more than 2,000 homeless, and housed 333 of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable women, children and men in our region across 12 sites.

All of GHH's programs are designed to address the most fundamental of needs: food and housing. GHH delivers wrap-around supports to help address root causes of poverty and homelessness, build people's skills to become self-sufficient and support people in achieving and maintaining long-term housing stability. Due to the high quality services offered through GHH's Housing Program, GHH has a strong track record of successfully transitioning residents into permanent housing, where they are able to remain stably housed and prosper. In 2016, GHH completed an in-depth audit of its Housing Program entry and exit data from the first 12 years of operating its housing programs: 65% of clients graduated to permanent housing within 15 months; 81% increased or maintained income; 91% improved access to healthcare and/or improved physical/mental health; and 83% reported feelings of increased safety.  

Needs Statement

Grandma's House has diverse programming for unique populations and therefore has diverse needs. The following are the most critical: 

- $700 provides one month of food, transitional housing, counseling, workforce development and other trauma-informed services for a uniquely challenged woman in crisis. 
- $400 pays for meal bags, each containing 24 healthy meals, to be delivered directly to a low-income homeless child twice a month for an entire year.
- $250 provides a 6-week fine arts class for up to 10 low-income children at the Hope Works! Education and Enrichment Center.
Every dollar contributed to GHH helps to meet the basic needs of the most vulnerable women, children and men in Orange County. 
Additionally, GHH is always seeking volunteers. GHH works with more than 4,300 volunteers annually and is a Certified Volunteer Services Enterprise. GHH's volunteers provide one-on-one coaching and mentoring to clients on job searching, job skills and money management; pack and deliver food to hungry kids and families; teach workshops to clients; and participate in "Work Day" projects, consisting of painting, gardening, yoga, art therapy, etc. GHH also is always looking for new Board members who are passionate about GHH's mission and willing to contribute their time and talents.

GHH Rescued and Restored Women's Housing Program

The GHH Rescued and Restored Women's Housing Program provides emergency, transitional, safe haven and long-term supportive housing, as well as food to prepare three meals a day, services to meet basic needs, care coordination, case management/advocacy, counseling, workforce development, 12-step programs and individualized, trauma-informed care. GHH's Housing Program specialized in serving women, with or without very young children, and men who are ineligible for other housing programs because of the complexity of their cases, incarceration histories, trauma histories, physical or mental disabilities and/or medication regimes. GHH's trauma-informed services are all designed to help participants heal from trauma and abuse, access healthcare, improve their physical and mental health, feel safer, maintain or increase their income, and successfully transition into permanent housing. 

Budget  $1,772,216.00
Category  Housing, General/Other Transitional Housing
Population Served Homeless Females Elderly and/or Disabled
Program Short-Term Success  The short-term goal of the Housing Program is to successfully transition homeless women to permanent housing with sufficient income and life skills to maintain that housing independently. Annually, we aim to transition 65% of our Housing Program participants into permanent housing within 15 months of beginning participation in our Housing Program. GHH's additional goals are for 80% of participants to maintain or increase income and improve their credit scores while in the Housing Program; 90% to improve their access to healthcare and/or improve their physical/mental health; and 80% to report feelings of increased safety.
Program Long-Term Success 
Ultimately, the Housing Program aims to eliminate or dramatically reduce homelessness in Orange County and also decrease the instances of clients' return to human trafficking and other abusive relationships. 
Program Success Monitored By 

The Program evaluates its successes by tracking service delivery and service efficacy data. We utilize the Orange County Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) database to capture information on the units of housing (“bed nights”) provided and on the number of women and children served. We also track individual units of supportive services (case management, counseling, workforce development, and financial management, among others) in participants’ Weekly Progress Sheets. To analyze service efficacy, we track participants’ graduation destination (permanent housing, temporary housing, rehabilitation, incarceration, homelessness, or unknown) and net changes in their income in HMIS.


Examples of Program Success 

An in-depth review of our program entry and exit data of the first 12 years of operating our housing program shows that 65% of our clients graduated to permanent housing within 15 months; 81% maintained or increased income; 91% improved access to healthcare and/or improved physical/mental health; and 83% reported feelings of increased safety. In 2017, we housed 333 individuals, a 26% increase from the prior year. Since our founding, we have helped over 2,000 women and young children permanently improve their life circumstances and break the cycle of poverty, incarceration, homelessness and abuse.

Healing House

Under the umbrella of GHH's Rescued and Restored Housing Program, GHH offers Healing House as the only housing program in Orange County offering specialized housing services for homeless women struggling with breast cancer and other severe medical needs. In 2011, GHH dedicated a six bedroom home as the Healing House directed at serving women with severe physical health needs, particularly breast cancer. Today,  the program continues to grow as the need for the services increases. Women in this program support and encourage each other with an understanding of and empathy for what each other are going through. 

In 2013, GHH opened Dorothy House to specialize in recuperative care and to be a next step for women in the Healing House program. In this way, GHH helps to lead and support its participants through a transition to health and self-reliance.
GHH has also built relationships with the hospitals and medical centers most often used by clients to better assist clients and to open the door for medical referrals and treatment plans. Most recently GHH has built relationships with the County of Orange, local services and hospice agencies to offer hospice care onsite for participants who may be facing terminal illness.
Budget  $249,773.00
Category  Housing, General/Other Homeless Shelter
Population Served People/Families of People with Health Conditions Homeless Females
Program Short-Term Success 

Short Term Objective A:  After 30 days of being in the GHH program, 90% of participants will report improved personal health and increased knowledge of healthy lifestyle goals. After entering the program, many women are working to manage mental or physical illness with medical care or responsible medication while others are looking to overcome addition. For those just beginning courses of difficult treatment, improved health may be more about having a plan and a healthy outlook.

Short Term Objective B: 85% of the participating women will gain access to care for a physical or mental illness which they have had difficulty obtaining without stable housing. Due to the unique women GHH serves, their needs vary greatly. Access to care may mean: life-saving treatments; access to medications for mental illness, in a controlled situation; simply accessing doctor appointments regularly and consistently; or setting healthy goals, with support, such as quitting an addiction.

Program Long-Term Success 

Long Term Outcome A: All graduating participants will have met 95% of their health related goals weekly and upon graduation from the program will have reached 100% of their long term goals, or have worked with a case manager to amend them appropriately. Graduating participants will meet their health related goals weekly and achieve long term goals through graduation from the program. 

Long Term Outcome B: 90% of participants will stabilize their health prior to completing GHH's Housing Program. This will include overcoming immediate issues and/ or managing chronic illness.Women will stabilize their health quickly and sustainably as a critical step toward their self-reliance.

Program Success Monitored By 

The most basic measurements are tracked by HMIS – the centralized database and software that is the County standard for homeless services tracking. Additionally all clients work with a Case Manager/Advocate to develop an Individual Action Plan (IAP), which includes short and long term goals for their immediate health, graduation from the program and ultimately taking steps toward self-reliance. This IAP is then turned into specific goals to review each week with their Case Manager/Advocate, as well as daily targets to meet the requirements of the program. The program sheet is also an opportunity to track successes, challenges and warm & fuzzies. The program sheet is reviewed by the participant daily and by staff weekly. This system offers structure and program requirements, while still having flexibility to meet each woman’s unique needs. Ultimately GHH believes its success is measured by the individual stories of the women helped by GHH's services.  

Examples of Program Success 

Beth was raised by a single mother who verbally and physically abused her. As soon as she could, she left her mother's house and moved in with her grandmother. Her grandmother also abused her and neglected her health needs. Beth was diagnosed with kidney failure and regular dialysis treatments were required for her survival. Sometimes her grandmother reluctantly took her to her treatment, while other times she neglected them all together. After years of abuse and neglect, Beth found GHH. GHH helped to keep Beth safe, away from her abusers, and provided case management/advocacy and counseling for Beth to begin healing. GHH worked with Beth to ensure that her treatments happened regularly and that she had a support system for the physical healing she required. Beth lived at Healing House while awaiting a kidney transplant and then to recover after her kidney transplant in 2013. GHH staff transported her to follow-up appointments and her housemates encouraged her throughout her recovery. 

Nana's Kidz

Nana's Kidz was created to provide healthy meals to low-income and homeless and unstably housed children and families who are enrolled in the Free and Reduced Price Lunch Program and often go hungry during weekends and summer months when school cafeterias are closed. GHH brings food directly to participating children at local motels and after-school programs to avoid the embarrassment of receiving food at a public distribution site.
Additionally, GHH conducts outreach activities in the broader Orange County community, including bi-weekly visits to two local motels and four community centers, to deliver food and offer resources and support to impoverished and struggling families. GHH serves over 187,000 meals directly to low-income and homeless or unstably housed children and families every year. To date, GHH has served more than two million meals to families in need. 
Budget  $383,500.00
Category  Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, General/Other Food Distribution
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) At-Risk Populations Homeless
Program Short-Term Success 

GHH's Nana's Kidz Program will remove accessibility barriers by bringing food bags--each containing 24 meals--every two weeks directly to 300 homeless and unstably housed children and families; by delivering food to 1,410 additional kids and families through bi-monthly outreach events; and by distributing food bags to 1,500 chronically homeless on the streets. In total, Nana's Kidz will distribute a total of 187,880 meals to people in need. 600 volunteers will participate and help by securing food donations, working food packing and distribution and helping the program.

Program Long-Term Success  Nana's Kidz is a basic needs program at its core and is focused on providing short-term solutions for families as they seek long-term success. Therefore, the program does not focus on tracking long-term success of program participants. Ultimately, the long-term success of the program would mean that fewer children go hungry in Orange County each night.
Program Success Monitored By 

GHH's Chief Executive Officer and Program Manager will work with program staff to evaluate the progress of each outcome through staff meetings and regular tracking and reporting. For the Nana's Kidz Program, this includes food distribution records, partner records and the volunteer database.

Examples of Program Success 
GHH distributed bags to 33 children at one of our partner sites.  One of the mothers told us: "I only have $300 left and I need to pay rent to stay this week at the motel. My car broke down, I was told $300 to repair it. Then, I ran into an old friend, whose new husband is a mechanic. He charged me only $50 to fix my car.  Now I have $250 left.  Your food for my child will save me grocery costs, and help me pay the motel. [Rent is $240/week.] Thank you!"

Hope Works! Program

GHH provides food, care coordination and other support services through the HopeWorks! Education and Enrichment Center (HWEEC) Program, which is based in a very low-income Section 8 housing complex -- Cherry Orchard -- in west Anaheim that houses 45 families, including over 90 children. 75% of these residents have service-based vouchers and must participate in community programs to retain their rental subsidies. Since 2014, GHH has offered supportive services, intensive programming and resource connections to residents that address for keystones: (1) Parent & Me (for parents of children ages zero to five years); (2) After School Programming; (3) Health & Wellness; and (4) Adult Education. More families than are required to -- a full 98% of residents -- engage in GHH's services. GHH's on-site services ensure that families meet the service requirement, are able to maintain stable housing, have their other basic needs met and are aided in getting job and bettering their lives.

Budget  $360,384.00
Category  Employment, General/Other Job Training & Employment
Population Served Unemployed, Underemployed, Dislocated Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Adults
Program Short-Term Success 
Through the HWEEC Program, GHH will deliver enriching programs and services to 160 low-income subsidized housing residents in Anaheim, including 7,020 meals, 1,080 hours of case management/advocacy, educational workshops every other month, 1,620 resource referrals, after-school programming for kids and an eight-week summer camp for kids.
Program Long-Term Success 

As a result of the HWEEC Program, GHH hopes to increase educational attainment, employment and income among adult participants; better prepare mothers and fathers to engage in healthy parenting; improve children's interest and performance in school; and preserve stable housing for all of the participating families.

Program Success Monitored By 

GHH's Chief Executive Officer and the Program Manager will work with program staff to evaluate the progress of each outcome through staff meetings and regular tracking and reporting. For HWEEC, this includes participant interviews, HWEEC enrollment records and class registration records as well as partner tracking and volunteer database.

Examples of Program Success 

Tina came to Grandma’s House of Hope a month before Jane did, but they already had much in common. Both came to GHH as survivors of human trafficking, both originally from Ethiopia. They quickly became friends as the worked to heal together. 

Neither one spoke any English, yet with help from the Hope Works! program and GHH interns, they completed online courses to prepare for an in-class English course at the local community college. Neither one had any identification, documents, birth certificates, etc. Through GHH, they were able to work through legal channels to obtain all necessary documents. In fact, both obtained drivers licenses, which can be very difficult.

Hope Works! then helped Tina and Jane apply for positions and prepare for the workforce. Both now work full-time together at a well-respected local Anaheim hotel. After 9 months in the program, they have prospered.

GHH's partnerships are diverse and contribute to our success in multiple ways. For example, through our relationship with Anaheim Supportive Housing and Second Harvest Food back, GHH operates the HWEEC community and youth center and provides food food support at a subsidized housing facility for "very low income" families and to homeless and unstably housed children throughout North and Central Orange County. Through partnership with IAS Counseling Services, we provide all women in our Housing Program weekly group and individual counseling. To identify the women most in need of our Housing Program services, we partner closely with homeless outreach workers in our community, which include police departments' Homeless Liaison Officers, the County Health Care Agency's homeless outreach teams, the Public Defender's Office, the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force, and several street outreach nonprofits and faith groups. Our participation in and collaboration with the Continuum of Care and all of its member housing programs allow us to stay abreast of changes in the field of housing and to continue identifying the populations that have the highest need for housing support in our community but who are deemed ineligible by other programs.

CEO Comments

It takes a unique individual to work with the populations served by GHH.  We work with the hardest of hard cases, which is extremely rewarding.  However, it also means all my staff hear tough stories all week from people who have hit their rock bottom usually through no fault of their own, with no one else to turn to, and if we say no to them - which we sometimes must - it is truly the end of the road.  Their dedication to listening and helping and finding resources to say YES as often as possible, speaks to the incredible integrity of our staff and board.
It should also be noted that in 2014 GHH began the process to becoming a California Volunteer Service Enterprise to maximize its volunteer force and to leverage skilled volunteers to enhance GHH programs.
