Family Assistance Ministries

Family Assistance Ministries (FAM) is a faith-based charitable non-profit organization assisting those in need in Orange County with resources for food, shelter, and personalized supportive counsel and aid, helping clients bridge the gap from dependency to self-sufficiency. FAM was founded in 1999 by Ellen Gilchrist to accommodate the families that a local church was no longer able to serve. Today FAM provides food, shelter, and client aid to tens of thousands in Orange County. We provide assistance for utilities, transportation, medical, dental, and prescription drugs, as well as financial counseling, free income tax preparation and collaboration with other social services organizations to provide referrals and medical screenings, immunizations, eye glasses, and much more.
