Home   What We Do   Community Support

Through years of providing services, The Cambodian Family has developed a strong relationship and level of trust with the community. We are able to do so through addressing the needs of the community and providing them with the support they want so they can create health and well-being in their lives.

 

Speaking English can oftentimes be taken for granted. For the people in our community, it means the difference in getting a well-paying job to provide for their family. Since the beginning, The Cambodian Family has been providing English as a Second Language courses to any and everyone interested in learning English. Specializing in conversational English, our ESL classes have helped hundreds get a job. Our classes are Monday-Fridays from 8am-11:30am. To learn more contact us or check out our calendar.

The community we serve are considered “low-income,” with many living at below the poverty level. Through a collaboration with the Community Action Partnership of Orange County, we distribute over 1000 lbs. of food to needy families each week.

According the the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government, Santa Ana is the most difficult urban area in the US in which to live. Many factors including land use, health care access, poverty, education, and safety are reasons why. That is why we work directly with the Bishop Manor and Minnie Street Cornerstone Village. Through the Bishop Manor Taskforce, which includes collaborative partners such as KidWorks, The City of Santa Ana, The Santa Ana Police Department, OCAPICA, Supervisor Janet Nguyen’s office, and Latino Health Access, we have accomplished many successes.

To learn more, come to our meetings, currently scheduled for the 2nd Wednesday of each month at Bishop Manor.
