On September 27, 2022, the OC Board of Supervisors authorized dissolution of the Orange County Children’s Partnership. This change was made to reduce duplication of services already provided by other programs and committees within Orange County.
The annual Conditions of Children Report will continue publication under the direction of the County of Orange Social Services Agency.
Orange County Children's Partnerships is a unified voice that champions health, education, safety and economic stability by advancing more responsive services that effectively meet the needs of children and families in Orange County communities.
The Orange County Children's Partnership (OCCP) is a 22-member advisory body made up of public and community agencies. It was established by the Board of Supervisors in 1982 to improve the condition of Orange County's children, address community needs, and ensure the greatest return on investment of government funds. Since August 1993, the OCCP has sponsored the Annual Report on the Conditions of Children in Orange County.
The responsibilities of the Partnership include providing a forum for departments and agencies to disseminate and discuss operational and program problems and issues concerning the Juvenile Justice and Dependency systems and seriously emotionally and/or behaviorally disturbed children; identifying gaps in the service system for high-risk children and their families; and recommending collaborative programs to better serve all Orange County’s children.
