Mission Statement

Our mission is to advance self-sufficiency through sustainable programs in health, financial stability, education, and community engagement.

Background Statement

​​In 1969, Delhi Center was incorporated as a nonprofit organization by residents, the local Catholic Church, and the Junior League of Newport Beach. The National Armory donated two WWII era Quonset Huts, and the Manuel Esqueda family donated the land on the corner of Center and Halladay.

​Signs of community distress and social displacement were evidenced by the 1990 Census. The area became home to very young households with high unemployment rates and low educational levels. Gang involvement and crime increased, and the neighborhood acquired a negative image which resulted in older families moving away. These conditions triggered renewed efforts to improve the neighborhood and brought together various social groups who pressed the City of Santa Ana to expand the Delhi Park and to construct a new community center.

​In 2001, center leaders achieved an historic milestone and constructed the largest community center of its kind in Santa Ana. Grant funding was secured from various sources through a combined effort of the City and Delhi Center leaders, which involved resident focus groups to ensure the community had a voice. With the support of elected officials, residents, and private sponsors Delhi Center opened its doors at its current location on December 17, 2001.

​Delhi Center entered into a contract with City of Santa Ana whereby the land is owned by the City and the building is owned by Delhi Center. This unique partnership has resulted in countless beneficial services provided to not only the Delhi neighborhood but to the entire Santa Ana community.

Delhi Center continues to serve as a gathering place for local residents and organizations from throughout Orange County. It serves as an investment vehicle for those wishing to impact the lives of our most challenged neighbors.

​Its leaders have brought Delhi Center full circle, helping it to become independent and self-sufficient by generating multiple revenue streams to reduce its dependence on grant funding for administrative costs. Delhi Center has maintained a high level of service and welcomes over 42,000 individuals annually through its doors for various programs, services, and events.

People of all ages and all walks of life are served at Delhi Center, which continues to improve the quality of life for residents of Santa Ana and the surrounding communities. Its history, perseverance, and impact is a testament to the work ethic of those it serves and the hope that defines its legacy.

Impact Statement

A great success has been Delhi Center’s Financial Stability Program, operated since 2013. In 2016, nearly 1,400 individuals received financial education workshops and approximately 170 clients were assisted with lowering their utility and phone bills. 68 clients were served with intensive case management services, 71% of whom opened a savings account, 66% improved their credit scores, and 54% significantly decreased their debt.

The first Summer Enrichment Camp was offered in 2016, serving 60 participants M-F from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm for 9 weeks. Children engaged in visual and performing art lessons while teens participated in leadership development and served as Junior Camp Leaders. A musical theatrical production and an art gallery were featured at the End-of-Summer Extravaganza to celebrate participant achievements.

 The Camp has been expanded to include a STEM based Mathletics program, which provides activities in math and science and a math and science fair as part of the end-of-summer celebration. The teen component has been developed into a year-round program, which helps teens develop skills needed for effective leadership that they apply in meaningful service to the community through internships at Delhi Center. Each teen who completes the program receives a $500 scholarship.

Delhi Center has initiated two new projects that aim to address financial and educational distress. The Early Learning Project is a collaborative that seeks to develop collective impact strategies to improve early learning outcomes for Santa Ana children ages 0-8 while focusing on how family financial status impacts early learning. The Fair Lending Project addresses problems associated with payday loans and high-interest lending platforms that are pervasive throughout Santa Ana. These projects will result in an inventory of services that provide economic supports to families as well as best practices for early learning and will serve to increase support for families.

CEO Statement

My name is Jenny Rios and I have been the Delhi Center CEO since July 27, 2015. I love coming to work at this dynamic and vibrant place! The people who work here and volunteer here and participate here all work together to help make Santa Ana a better place to live. 

Let me give you an example of our great staff. First there is Freddy our Facility Coordinator. Freddy grew up in the neighborhood and he used to hang out in front of the center with a bunch of friends on their skateboards. He started volunteering at the center, helping his dad who was the custodian. Freddy was hired as the Facility Coordinator just to help with facility rentals. He is a young man of many talents and as a result, his responsibilities have increased significantly. Freddy not only handles facility rentals but he also takes the lead on our IT issues, social media marketing, and overall trouble shooting. He always has a smile on his face and a positive outlook on life.
Another staff person is Nancy who was hired to manage the very program her family was a participant in. Nancy always comes up with innovative ideas to help Delhi Center better serve the community. She is an advocate for financial stability and has a passion for helping clients save money and improve their financial status. Many clients have reduced debt, increased their credit scores, and increased their assets through Nancy's guidance and support. 
An example of our fantastic volunteers is Tony who was one of our program participants. Tony is a happy guy and he loves to help the center. Tony comes in almost every day to help keep the center clean. He helps with daily maintenance and with bigger projects such as cleaning and polishing floors. Delhi Center is over 36,000 square feet with a lot of foot traffic every day so this is no small effort!
Then there's our seniors who meet twice a week to help keep each other active in a safe and social environment. Recently 6 seniors volunteered to be trained to manage a food distribution program for the community. The program must be run by volunteers and these seniors stepped up to the plate to get the job done. The community will benefit from fresh produce, canned goods, and other food items to help manage household costs.
Delhi Center is about the community working together to improve the lives of all residents. People don't just come to Delhi Center to be served. They come here to take part in serving and giving back as well. Delhi Center was originally created by the people of the community, and it continues to serve the community through the efforts of all.

The program also improves the quality of life of residents by engaging them in creative and educational activities that are accessible in terms of affordability and location. It addresses the barriers that often prevent participation in the arts by ensuring involvement despite the inability to pay, through the use of scholarships.

Program Success Monitored By 

Participants are evaluated based on instructor observations as well as student achievement and increased skill levels based on pre- and post-tests designed specifically for each program component. Success is monitored by the ability of students to graduate to the next level within the class structure. Parents are also given pre and post tests to measure their participation in their children’s activities.

Examples of Program Success 

The Mommy and Me Ballet classes have seen tremendous success with a high rate of parent involvement and increased ability of students. This has resulted in the need to double the number of classes offered each week and add more levels as students make progress in skill level. The lessons learned from this structure are being used to modify other classes offered so that parents are require to become more involved for their children to participate. Through this parent connection, we expect to see further increases in attendance and long-term commitment to a variety of educational and healthy pursuits.

CEO Comments

Like many nonprofit organizations who have survived the recession, Delhi Center struggles to find the core support and programmatic funding. For the first time in 5 years, our center ended the calendar year 2011 and 2012 with no debt and the elimination of an annual deficit. Although reserves are modest, our plan is to build critical reserves in 2013 and 2014 to not only maintain our programming and optimize staffing, but also to address deferred building maintenance issues and establish a “rainy day fund.”

CEO Comments

Delhi Center has experienced a decrease in financial support, particularly from government sources. In 2010, for example, we benefitted from city, county, state, and federal support for our Child Care Training Program, HIV/AIDS Case Management, and other health services targeting children and families. In FY 2011, due to government budget crises, the only renewed contract was with the County of Orange to support our case management services. However, this contact was awarded at a reduced amount compared to previous years.
Despite decreased funding, demand for services from Delhi Center’s clientele has never been higher. Thus, we must maintain high levels of client service with fewer resources, reduced staffing and reduced staff hours. While accomplishing more with less, we are currently undertaking a review of each program to evaluate sustainability, staffing, service quality and accountability.
Delhi Center has also launched 12 capacity building and revenue generation strategies to be implemented by 2014. Furthermore, in 2011 the Delhi Center Board of Directors committed to hiring the organization’s first director in 5 years and, thus, the need for support of critical staff has grown.

CEO Comments

a)     the Delhi Center ran a deficit in 2010 as a result of program expansion and increased demand for services accompanying the economic downturn. We have successfully eliminated our annual deficit within the last 11 months; this is a major accomplishment as our debt exceeded $150,000 at its height and our annual deficit was once a recurring problem.  We have successfully completed 2011 as a break-even year, the first time in five years through a combination of strategic grant writing, our events reservation social venture program, increased collaboration with community partners, and individual donor support.  Our asset base now includes modest but actual cash-on-hand and a beautiful building that is owned outright. Ownership of our facility has provided opportunities for rental revenue ensuring self-sustainability for all our programs long term. Not only have we eliminated our annual deficits and debts, we anticipate no loss for 2012 and will show a modest cash reserve on our 2012 returns. 

b)     Environmental Sustainability Committee established to research alternative energy such as solar power, to reduce our expenses on utilities and to build further capacity.
