The Courtyard Outreach Program…
a safe place to sleep at night for those who are resistant to the idea of shelters.

Opened on October 5, 2016, The Midnight Mission’s Orange County Courtyard, in partnership with the County of Orange, is an integral resource for individuals experiencing homelessness in Orange County. Open 24/7, 365 days a year, the OC Courtyard holds up to 450 guests in the safe and secure renovated Santa Ana Transit Terminal, offering a safe place to sleep for homeless individuals who are resistant to the idea of a traditional shelter.

Homeless Services in Orange County

Our OC Courtyard offers a place where anyone experiencing homelessness can stay for a secure night of sleep, but the Courtyard is much more than that. We offer a variety of amenities so our guests can nourish themselves, recharge, and take respite from the harsh reality of life on the street:

  • 3 Hot Meals per Day
  • Hygiene Facilities
  • Laundry Facilities
  • Storage
  • 24/7 Security
  • Couple’s Lodging
  • Pet Lodging

Homeless Healthcare & Rehabilitation Services

While we are proud to offer a secure bed through our Orange County Courtyard, we understand that a safe place to sleep is only the first step to getting back on your feet – and we intend to help you through the entire process. By offering connection to necessary services at The OC Courtyard, we are better able to assist our guests experiencing homelessness on their path to self-sufficiency. Whether you’re struggling to get vital healthcare or dental care, need help with mental health or substance addiction issues, or you’re struggling to find employment, The Midnight Mission can provide the support you need to change your trajectory and achieve the life you deserve:

  • Employment Search
  • Social Services
  • Health Care
  • Dental Clinic
  • Eye Care
  • Veterans Services
  • Collaborative Courts
  • Legal Services
  • Flu Shots
  • Behavioral Health Services
  • Literacy Classes
  • Haircuts
  • Pet and Veterinary Services

Yes, we welcome dogs to the space, so long as they are friendly with other dogs and people. We accept up to two dogs per person if we have the space, and cats are also welcome.

Yes, you are welcome to stay in the Courtyard during the day. That said, we offer connection to a variety of services, and we encourage our guests to look for work or meet with case management to start a housing plan.

Yes. We serve 3 hot meals for each guest, every day.

Unfortunately, we have no reserved parking, and paid parking in the area is very expensive. For these reasons, we don’t recommend bringing a car to the Courtyard.

We enforce an 8:30 pm curfew. If you do not return to the shelter before that time you risk losing your bed.
