I-HELP

Mission

Outreach Unlimited helps those who are homeless work toward becoming more self-reliant by offering nightly shelter, food and support targeted toward each individual's need for stable housing, employment or benefits.

The Big Idea

Through the project I-HELP, Outreach Unlimited helps those who are homeless work toward becoming more self-reliant by offering nightly shelter, food and support targeted toward each individual’s need for stable housing, employment or benefits. I-HELP provides homeless men and women with more than just a bed and a meal—it also offers a place for them to rebuild their lives and be part of the community. The I-HELP staff work with clients on housing, social services, counseling and skills to become independent. During the pandemic, I-HELP expanded its services to keep people safe 24 hours a day.

I-HELP is the place to repair and rebuild your life. It's the place to meet your flaws so your happiness isn't destroyed. Here you can replace sad feelings with optimism.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
