Impact statement

Our top three program accomplishments during 2015 include: =Services Provided through Our Programs= From January 1, 2015-August 1, 2015, the Rescue Mission served 216,162 meals to 430+ homeless persons at the Village of Hope, provided 2,085 food boxes through the OCRM (each food box serves a family of 4 for a week), 6,571 food boxes through the Dhont Foundation and Second Harvest, and are serving roughly 2,950 meals a month through our mobile food outreach. Our House of Hope and Hope Family Housing campuses remain at an average 90% occupancy (August 2015). The total number of meals served across our programs during the Oct. 2014- Sept. 2015 fiscal year is being calculated. Veterans Transitional Housing Project In February 2015, we acquired 2 fourplexes (8 units) for the purpose of increasing available transitional housing beds for homeless veterans in Orange County. The targeted population is male veterans, between the ages of 24-54, who are willing and able to go back to work. Veterans will have access to supportive services at the Village of Hope campus (2 miles away). Renovations on the properties have begun and we continue to pursue funds to fully rehabilitate and open the Project within the next year. Laurel House The Rescue Mission continues to provide administrative support for Laurel House, a Tustin-based program for young girls (12-17) with behavioral issues. The agency remains an independent 501(c)3 and reopened in May 2015. Grilled Cheese Food Truck We partnered with the Grilled Cheese Food Truck franchise to create a vocational opportunity for veterans in our programs. The Truck has begun operation, is taking bookings, and making a great impact on both the foodie community and our clients' confidence and skills!

Program 3

Double R Ranch

The Double R Ranch (DRR) is a 142-acre transitional housing program for men in recovery. DRR is a working ranch and rescues, boards, breeds, and shows Arabian horses, as well as breeding border collies and goats. Proceeds from livestock sales support Ranch operations. DRR can house up to 24 men for 18-24 months. As part of their program, residents perform ranch chores, Bible study, learn to ride horses, and build community through the 12-step ""Wild at Heart"" curriculum group sessions. They continually gain new skills and leadership abilities. Each resident is assigned to 1 of 5 crews: Horses, Goats, Dogs, Grounds, and Kitchen. After spending 2 months in each crew, they rise to 'Sophomore' Level/Crew Lead. Senior students act as Crew Supervisors and the Ranch Director works personally with Senior students' practical leadership skills. The men are also connected with the services offered at the Village of Hope, including health care, counseling, and job development.

Funding Needs

The Orange County Rescue Mission's most pressing needs are as follows:1. Assistance with general operating costs for OCRM programs, including: --Village of Hope--House of Hope--Double R Ranch--Multiple Mobile Services Program--Veterans Transitional Housing--Veterans Outreach2. Assistance with program costs, such as meal costs for the Village of Hope, the mobile feeding program, direct client assistance funding, costs for operation of the mobile legal clinic, the Summer Camp program for the Village of Hope children, and donations (in-kind and financial) for the Veterans Transitional Housing.3. Increased relationship and community with our supporters. This can look like anything from attending an executive briefing, coming on-site for a tour, suggesting a booking location for the Grilled Cheese Truck to Booking Manager, Kristin, or volunteering.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE FOR FISCAL YEAR

Mr. Jim Palmer

BIO

Jim Palmer has been President of OCRM since October 1992. Born and raised in Orange County, Mr. Palmer co-founded Irvine Temporary Housing, which assists homeless men, women and children and he served as Co-Chairman of the U.S. Olympic Committee in 1984. He is also an ordained pastor at the Village Church of Irvine and has served on over 42 different non-profit Board of Directors. Since 1997, he has served as a County Commissioner and past Chairman for Orange County's Housing Commission. Jim was instrumental in development of the CoC-Leadership Cabinet, a sub-committee of the Housing Commission which assists in the development of regional strategies for homeless programs. As Chair, he helped the Orange County government secure over $53 million in federal funding for county homeless programs. Jim founded the Orange County Partnership, a collaborative group of hunger, housing, and healthcare providers. He is a strong advocate for decentralizing non-profit administration - empowering staff to make decisions centered on mutual values. Under Jim's direction, OCRM received the 211th Presidential Point of Light for program excellence and cost effectiveness on behalf of the homeless in Orange County in 2004. He was elected to the Tustin City Council in Nov. 2006. Jim's strong belief in serving others and excellent reputation as a leader led to a Presidential appointment and Senate confirmation as a Director on the Corporation for National and Community Service's Board. He served in this role through 2011. When hurricane evacuees came to Orange County, Jim led a county-wide effort to assist them. This was the only county in the nation who allowed a government, public and non-profit disaster recovery effort to be led by a non-profit organization. Jim currently serves as Chairman for the Professional Service Responders; Orange County Sheriff's Department (in Orange County, CA); and as the Director of Security and Safety Division - Spirit West Coast Del Mar (Tustin, CA).

STATEMENT FROM THE CEO

"Every aspect of the Rescue Mission is intended to transform our clients in various ways in their journey here at the Village of Hope. In my experience, it may be easy to find someone a job, but if that person has not experienced the heart change that only Christ can give, seldom do they experience the same outcome. This is what separates us from everyone else! Our clients' success in becoming self-sufficient is a direct result of your investment in their transformational heart change within our program."
