Our Values are informed by our Ethos of
Humanity, Equity, and Opportunity.

We are Compassionate. We help those in need.

We are Enthusiastic. We love what we do!

We are Driven. We find solutions.

We are Accountable. We operate with integrity.

We are Respectful. We embrace diversity.


The OC Way is the embodiment of what we stand for in our community. It’s a commitment to helping when we see a need. It’s the ideology that when we work together, we are stronger. It’s going the extra mile to care for our neighbors. That’s The OC Way.


Our unique approach comes from an understanding that our community’s most critical issues are interrelated, and we must tackle them in an interconnected way to provide long-term solutions that break the cycle. This is why we focus on three initiatives:
