Orange County Community Housing Corporation is not just your typical affordable housing nonprofit. Not only do they support affordable housing for very low-income families, provide financial empowerment sessions for their families, and provide college preparedness for their students, they continuously adapt to the needs of the community. For instance, through their SteppingUp program, OCCHC realized the missing gap between high-income students and their SAT score and low-income students and their SAT score. OCCHC had decided to implement a new program for SAT testing to provide their students with the same equity in SAT scores. Students who have gone through the program have seen dramatic increases in their score that provided them a scholarship or college grant. OCCHC is innovative and continuously support their families by providing them a pathway of success. I am proud to be a board member.

OCCH is a great organization empowering youth in low income housing to achieve impressive academic results through their SteppingUp program available to tenant families and the surrounding communities. Serving on the Board is privilege allowing the benefit of advocacy and promotion of a grassroots program that works and continues to give back.

For 35 years OCCHC has been a leader and advocate for affordable housing in Orange County. But they are more than a home builder and landlord; all staff members are also angels for the extremely low income families in the county. As a board member I am astonished at each meeting with the level to which they serve their tenants. From services to help improve job skills and job seeking opportunities; to help and support for advanced education. Unlike a typical landlord, OCCHC’s mission is to help improve their tenant’s financial position through education. It is no surprise that former OCCHC tenants and employees are now leaders and affordable housing advocates in the community. In fact, several nonprofits and for-profit community development and housing entities in Orange County received initial support from OCCHC. What an awesome opportunity to serve!

The OCCHC has proven over the years to know how to directly impact the lives of people who simply need assistance in finding affordable housing. This is the first step to improving our economy, as a stable living environment allows children and whole families to flourish and pursue educational advances. OCCHC has a skilled team that is dedicated to helping people achieve a better life, and I have seen the results on a daily basis crossing paths with their tenants.

Dealing with their team members and tenants during the past ten years has enabled me to see the many benefits they provide to the community. As an office neighbor, and now board member, I can attest to their persistence and commitment to helping people.

The combination of secure and safe housing along with targeted educational programs provides an incredible foundation that helps entire families transition toward self-sufficiency. Not only is this organization addressing the root causes of generational poverty, they are also giving their residents the tools to create their own futures.

In a foot race, the staff at OCCHC would beat the Eveready Bunny. The College Awareness Program (CAP), a major part of the Educational arm of the organization, is second to none in the quality of work they do with today's youth. From my perspective, CAP has no equal.

working on the Education Commitee of OCCHC. Monica and her staff are simply second to none.
