Review for Orange County Community Housing Corp., Santa Ana, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with OCCHC for over a dozen years and have seen it grow from a small organization with great ideals to a great organization with lofty goals that are being achieved. Allen has an unbelievable knack to attract a staff of "doers" that have great intelligence, caring and the ability to make it happen regardless of the obstacles that need to be overcome. They have transformed themselves into an innovated organization that is making a big difference in a population of disadvantaged kids (and parents) and giving them the tools to not only succedd but to make a difference for others as well. They have found the secret to breaking the cycle of failure and making it a cycle of success. OCCHC has been one of our foundations most productive partnerships. It is a super example of our money well spent.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing young kids grow, learn and get some self confidence and understand that education and self worth are the key to long term success. The very limited but exptremely efficient OCCHC staff just don't ccept failure and the results show it.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  Donor & Director of a family foundation.
