Following is an excerpt from the opening article of our newest newsletter:

As South County Outreach enters its 25th year of providing hunger and homelessness services, our new location at 7 Whatney in Irvine, nearly doubles the size of our operations at 10,550 SF sq. ft.  The search for a new location took nine months and the approval and actual move required an additional seven months.  The desire to relocate came from the need to have all client services under one roof, removing the necessity for those seeking help to visit multiple sites. The Whatney location allows the work force development program, the Computer Learning Lab, to share the same location with all client services. We are a now a one stop location for all our client services! An added bonus, the move of the Computer Learning Lab gives Upscale Resale room to grow.

Though our space has doubled our rent has not.  We continue to be committed to keeping expenses down. Our financial priority remains – wise spending decisions, while at the same time offering a clean, dignified space for clients to visit and for volunteers and staff to work while assisting those in need. We have always delivered million dollar services; now the new location (through the hard work of staff, board and volunteers) is beginning to look like a million bucks.  The best news? Though the new location and furnishing look fantastic, everything inside was donated and the cost of rent has remained stable.

Please stop by and take a tour anytime, we’d love to host you!
