Some call it the most important meal of the day. For Orange County United Way, the Women’s Philanthropy Fund Breakfast is arguably the most significant one of the year. This inspirational event is Orange County’s biggest breakfast fundraiser and has raised millions of dollars over the years to support local programs and services that empower at-risk OC families.
Families in Orange County face a unique set of interconnected pressures that challenge student and family success. Low-wage jobs and our high cost of living can create housing instability that in turn negatively impacts academics and health.

Our Impact Hubs are a proven model for providing assistance and producing sustainable outcomes for children, their families and the neighborhood as a whole.

Programs and services take a “two-generation” approach, tackling intergenerational poverty by aligning and coordinating programs to serve the needs of families together.
