Geneva Hunger Program
The Geneva Hunger Program distributes money and nonperishable food items
donated by Genevans to two local agencies that work with the poor and
homeless in our community. We also give to the Presbyterian Hunger Program,
which reaches out to the poor all over the world. The agency that the Geneva
Hunger Program partners with is:
South County Outreach
Orange County Rescue Mission Village of Hope
Orange County Rescue Village of Hope is a facility providing temporary housing and food to homeless families, while providing counseling and job placement services to the parent(s) to help them find employment and permanent housing.
Orange County Rescue Mission House of Hope
Orange County Rescue House of Hope provides shelter and food to homeless
women and their children in Orange County. Geneva's Presbyterian Women
have long supported this agency.
South County Outreach
South County Outreach provides a food bank serviced by Genevans. They also provide job counseling and other services for homeless people.
South County Adult Day Care Center
Geneva members are now volunteering at the center located across El Toro Road from Geneva. The facility has undergone a recent renovation with rooms repainted. Like many non-profit organizations, the center is short of funds and crowded with clients needing help. For information, contact Director Gemma Heffernan at (949) 855-9444.
Aliso Viejo Family Resource Center
Geneva volunteers also help kids with their homework through the After-school Homework Club at the Aliso Viejo Family Resource Center, located in the nearby Iglesia Park Community Center. The Club tutors between 80 and 100 elementary school students 5 days a week in subjects ranging from reading to computer science.
Geneva also contributes backpacks for students, Christmas presents fpr students and their families, Mother's Day presents, books, games, and household items - along with lots of love and caring.
If you would like to help some of great kids with their homework, call Joan Burge at 949-830-9120.
Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian
We partner with Hoag to provide quality medical services locally and in Kenya.
