OC nonprofit supporting families with critically-ill children

Fighting a life-threatening illness requires a a lot of time and money.

The mission of Miracles for Kids, a nonprofit in Southern California, is to help families with critically-ill children fight bankruptcy, homelessness, hunger and depression--by providing housing.

The homes, called Miracle Manor, are made up of 12 two- and three-bedroom units that offer subsidized housing to families with children battling chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The property is located less than a mile from CHOC Hospital in Orange.

Miracles For Kids has also partnered with California's largest citrus grower, Perricone Farms, and The Los Angeles Angels in a program called Home Runs for Kids. Perricone Farms will donate $250 to Miracles For Kids for every home run the Angels hit this season.
