Other Ways to Get Involved

Resource and adoptive parents are needed throughout Orange County. However, if you are not ready to become a resource or adoptive parent, there are other opportunities for you to be involved and show your support for Orange County's foster children, their families, and out-of-home caregivers. Consider attending a County of Orange Social Services Agency volunteer orientation.  For more information, visit: http://ssa.ocgov.com/ssa_volunteer.

In addition, the County of Orange Operation Santa Claus program provides gifts and toys to children in foster care, group homes and for needy children in transition who are abused, neglected, physically or mentally challenged or homeless in Orange County. Disadvantaged families and at-risk youth also benefit. For more information, call (714) 679-2439, e-mail OperationSantaClaus@ssa.ocgov.com or visit http://ssa.ocgov.com/ssa_volunteer/santa.
