Homeless Outreach Project in Education
Project HOPE School, now known as Skyview Elementary, provides alternative education opportunities for approximately 50 K-8th grade homeless and other at-risk children in Orange County. It is the only school of its kind in the county and one of only a very few in the US. Since the early 1990’s, FPCO has supported the school with funding and volunteers.
First Presbyterian Church supports two orphans from The East Africa Partnership, located in Kenya. The Partnership has founded or supported four different orphanages – the Limuru Home for Girls, the Narok Home for Boys, the Nyeri Home for Boys and Girls, and the Nyeri Home for Disabled Children. These orphanages reach the neediest children of all tribes and regions and are also supported by local governments. More than 400 children are housed and cared for through the Partnership’s programs.
