Drive-Through Trick-or-Treat at Mile Square Park

Last Saturday, the community came together for a COVID-safe, kid-friendly drive-thru Trick-or-Treat event at Mile Square Park. Hundreds of families drove by to experience the spooky season filled with music, a pumpkin patch, a graveyard display, goodie bags, and more! There were treats for the entire family! Thank you to all our volunteers and families who attended.

Be Well OC North Campus

Increasing access to mental health and substance use disorder services helps ensure we are getting vital care to those most in need. The Be Well OC North Campus in Orange is the first of three Orange County Wellness Hubs that will serve as a cornerstone in building a world-class system of mental healthcare and a new reality for our county.

We truly believe that Be Well Orange County can and will lead the nation in optimal mental health and wellness for all residents.

$5 Million for Child Care Providers

Child care providers have struggled to balance the cost of providing safe and quality care with very limited revenues. That’s why Supervisor Doug Chaffee and I created the Child Care Relief Grant program, which will help maintain safe and reliable spaces for children, as we continue to rebuild our economy.

Applicants will be asked to provide a signed W-9 form, community care license(s) and/or business statement, 501c3 determination letter (for non-profits only), banking routing information, account number, and routing number.

Applications will be accepted until Friday, November 13 at 5:00 pm.
