Helping People With New Employment Opportunities in Orange County
There are many reasons why people face employment barriers. Some include personal, military, mental health, or a myriad of others. Regardless, these people need our help to get their lives back on track.
We are a nonprofit organization and a leader in the health and human services sector. We have the highest level of accreditation from CARF and make it our mission to empower, serve, and change more lives than ever.
Believing in the Power of Working Together
Our Orange County affiliate helps change lives in several ways. We achieve this through a series of programs, put into three categories which are disabilities services, workforce development, and veteran services. The dozens of programs in these categories help change lives for people of all backgrounds.
Our goal is to provide purpose, pride, and dignity to those who face barriers when finding jobs and keeping them. We also have thrift stores where you can come in and shop or donate which helps fuel our organization. More than 93 cents of every dollar is used to power our life-changing programs and services.
