There are several shelters for victims of domestic abuse here in Orange County, and the list below is not exhaustive.  There are faith community shelters that can be located through local places of worship.  There is help for minority community women in culturally-sensitive projects and shelters that can be found through the community centers that assist these groups.  Some of this assistance takes the form of outreach efforts, walk-in centers, and help in linking with other providers of shelter service.  Four such centers are

 Laura’s House, (South Orange County)  (949) 498-1511
 Human Options (South/Central OC) (949) 854-3554
