Recently The Epoch Times reporter, Lynn Hackman, toured Village of Hope to learn more and report on Orange County Rescue Mission. What stood out to her the most was the people here, like Chuck, who experienced a radical change and worked very hard to become the successful single father he is today.

I have come to rely on The Epoch Times, to tell the truth about homelessness with their various media outlets. The Epoch Times is willing to report on the complexities of homelessness. And it has given me opportunities to speak the truth of what is required to change the tide of homelessness in California.
