OC United has made a positive impact in the lives of many Valencia Park students and families. Thanks to the United Kids after-school program, our students benefit from extended learning and social-emotional support in a nurturing environment. We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of love and support that OC United has shown to our students, families, and community! Cindy Bak, Former Principal of Valencia Park Elementary
OC United's THRIVE House has been amazing for me. It’s allowed me to go to college and not have to worry about having a job that will support me or have to live in my car. I’m in a much better spot than I was a year ago. I’ve changed a lot over the past year and not a lot of people can say they’ve changed a lot in a year but I really have. OC United has provided so many opportunities and really just supports you along the way. I couldn’t thank them enough. J., Former-Foster Youth in THRIVE Program
18 months ago I joined OC United’s Domestic Violence support group, I came to help others as a Spanish translator, but God used this group to bring tremendous healing into my own heart, and to teach me to recognize what a healthy relationship is supposed to look like. B., Domestic Abuse Survivor
