Share Our Selves   
Human Services | Costa Mesa, CA |


Founded in 1970, Share Our Selves (SOS) has grown to become a model nonprofit organization providing the highest quality comprehensive safety net services to the homeless and low-income populations in Orange County, California. Initial services included food distribution, clothing and emergency financial aid for housing, transportation, prescriptions and children’s needs.

For more than 45 years SOS has provided a safety net to those needing emergency assistance. We pride ourselves on our fast response time, quality services, lack of bureaucracy, and caring response to those in crisis.

We believe in personalized care as a means to deliver quality services, improve population health and stability, and reduce costs. Valuing the concept of the right person, the right treatment, at the right time means we see care as predictive, preventive, personalized, and participatory.

Share Our Selves emphasizes care of the whole person though our comprehensive services, including medical and dental care, social services, behavioral health and seasonal outreach programs. We offer excellent case management, patient navigation, and solutions for social stressors for low–income and homeless individuals and families in Orange County.
