Wife.  Mother.  Jobless.  Hopeless.
This is the new epidemic in Orange County.

500,000 Southern California jobs that were lost in the pandemic were in women-dominated industries. Sadly, four times as many women as men dropped out of the workforce to care for their families.

Many dual incomes are now gone.  Many households now face eviction, homelessness, and hunger.

There’s a new epidemic in our community and we need your help!
