Anaheim Collaboration to Assist Motel Families

Mission Statement:

The Collaboration exists to help meet the needs of families in Anaheim area motels by providing services and tools necessary for the families to achieve self-sufficiency


Vision Statement:

Every family in the City of Anaheim has a quality of life that is enriched by having a safe, stable, and permanent residence to call home.



The Collaboration provides information and networking opportunities for human and social service providers who assist motel residents in Anaheim.  The group meets to share information, resources, and co-ordinate solutions to the needs of homeless motel residents of Anaheim.  The regular Collaboration meetings are NOT structured to provide direct assistance to individual clients. 


Meeting Schedule:

The Collaboration meets regularly on the first Tuesday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  When a holiday conflicts with the regular meeting date, the Collaboration meets on the second Tuesday of the month.   The meetings take place at the Downtown Community Center, 250 E. Center Street, Anaheim, CA 92805.  The phone number for the community center  is 714-765-4500.
