On any given night in Orange County, more than 5,000 men, women and children are without a place to sleep. Last year, the United Way partnered with UC Irvine to conduct a study on homelessness in Orange County. The study looked at the cost of homelessness and concluded that Orange County spends approximately $300 million dollars a year to address homelessness. And that the cost of fully housing the homeless would in fact be less – approximately $250 million a year.
