OCCHC is an extremely well-run nonprofit- well-organized, passionate, responsible and their staff are 150% committed to their cause. They are a pleasure to work with professionally as an advisor and personally as a volunteer.

OCCHC/SteppingUP is the only non-profit in Orange County committed to serving extremely low-income families through housing and education. Working with transitional housing shelters, OCCHC stabilizes homeless families through the provision of affordable housing. Its signature program SteppingUP, provides the resources and educational opportunities through Family Mentoring and the College Awareness Program that allow our future to break the cycle of poverty through higher education.

I have had the privilege of working at OCCHC/SteppingUP for 15 years and am honored to have been a part of an organization, part of a team and part of a family that is committed to changing lives for the betterment of our future. OCCHC/SteppingUP provides not just a house, but a home and a future for at-risk youth and families throughout Orange County.

OCCHC provides affordable housing and support for hundreds of students though their award winning Stepping Up program. The staff is professional and the Board of Directors highly engaged and provides direction and oversight. A lesser known, but equally important, is educational role the organization provides on community development and affordable housing policy matters.

The team at Orange County Community Housing Corporaton are unsung heroes. For more than 30 years they have devised ways to house and educate large, low-income families and have done it without making the job about themselves. They never toot their own horn. Their focus on mentoring and educating young people is exemplary. Let's all give more to this great organization so the number of families impacted reaches the thousands!

My experience with OCCHC staff has been a positive one. I have reviewed detailed information on OCCHC's financials and programs and have always been impressed. I am most impressed with the leaders that are a "product" of OCCHC's programing. For example, many former participants of OCCHC's stepping up program are now distinguished leaders in the community that contribute time, money, and expertise. OCCHC also does a tremendous job of having staff and board representation that is reflective of the community they serve.

This is a great organization to work with. Their units are clean and well maintained and they are really invested in helping people get back on their feet and not just to keep giving them charity. If you're thinking about donating this would be a great organization to help out.
