There is a outstanding non-profit organization that exists in Santa Ana dedicated to youth empowerment and community engagement. With a passion driven staff of dedicated professionals and lively volunteers, it is no wonder that The Cambodian Family has been fully operational for the past three decades. The facility is brought to life through pictures, drawings, arts and crafts of the students who occupy the area. I feel a sense of community and family every time I visit.
The Cambodian Family is one of the best programs for Cambodians that I've seen in the entire California. This organization raises awareness about the Cambodian culture while teaching the Cambodian youth and inspiring them to do more for their communities. It seems to me that this organization is essential to the Santa Ana community. I have also met individuals from this organization and they are great role models for the entire Cambodian community. The work that this group does is incredible, I am very grateful for this group of talented leaders to lead our future generation to success.
I've had the honor of meeting a few of The Cambodian Family staff and I must say, they are passionate about their line of work. They welcome visitors with a smile and open arms. The Cambodian Family has been around for over 30 years in Orange County. They offer educational and leadership programs as well as provide health services for those in their community. Initially starting off to help Cambodian refugees, this organization has grown tremendously throughout the years and have been able to expand their team to assist refugees from all over the world including Vietnam, Laos, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Russia, Ukraine, Bosnia, Ethiopia, and Somalia.
