Funding Needs

Our top 5 needs are: 1. Assistance with program costs, including the Village of Hope, House of Hope, Tustin Veterans Outpost, Food Distribution Program, and Veterans Outreach. Great for those who want to see lives changed through their giving. 2. Improvements and renovations to the Village of Hope, including upgrading of 30 rooms, replacing of the AC system, outdoor furniture, and resurfacing parking lot and installing new lights. Great for those interested in helping maintain the 192-bed program for homeless individuals and families! 3. Improvements and renovations to the House of Hope/Hope Family Housing facilities. The Rescue Mission operates several supportive (fixed rent) housing sites for homeless families and single mothers. When these sites need routine maintenance, we look to our donors to help support their neighbors in need. Great for those with a heart for struggling, low-income families. 4. Volunteers at our holiday events, including the Turkey Trot, Magic at the Mission, and special events. Contact Marley Penalosa (714-247-4368) for more information. Great for those looking to serve during the holidays. 5. Personal hygiene and household items, which cost the Rescue Mission roughly $2,918/month. Great for those who want to help meet every day needs.

Principal Officer

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 Principal Officer

"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."
