Who We Are

Since 1964, Community Action Partnership of Orange County has worked to enhance the quality of life in Orange County by eliminating and preventing the causes and effects of poverty. We are a California community based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (FED ID#: 95-2452787).

 
 

We have remained true to our mission “to enhance the quality of life within Orange County by eliminating and preventing the causes and effects of poverty by mobilizing and directing resources to programs that assist, educate, and promote self sufficiency.” The staff of Community Action Partnership of Orange County are committed to serving the communities where they work and live. They come from all walks of life rallying to support those in need, ending poverty and building stronger communities. Our agency is celebrating more than 50 years of helping people and changing lives.



 
 

The Partnership brings together both private and public resources to solve community problems and improve communities by bringing hope and services to the poor. The Partnership provides a variety of emergency services and capacity building programs that enable the poor to meet basic needs and develop the knowledge and skills to move out of poverty. The Partnership believes that poverty in all its forms and manifestations is degrading to the individual and represents a clear threat to the continued health and prosperity of our nation.

 
 
 

Today, as our economy becomes more troubled, we need to take Community Action to bring hope and help our communities to move forward.
