Overview


Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide opportunities for refugee and immigrant families to develop the knowledge, skills, and desires for creating health and well-being in their lives.


Background Statement

TCF is a grassroots, community-based organization founded by a group of Cambodian refugees in 1980 in Santa Ana’s impoverished Minnie Street Neighborhood, an area with a history of high crime rates, gang activity and drugs. Compelled to address the desperate needs of their community, a small group of the more skilled and knowledgeable Cambodian refugees came together, pooled their resources, and took action. They rented a small apartment and volunteered their time teaching English and providing other critical resettlement services to help their fellow community members overcome their recent trauma, learn new skills, and move forward with their lives. Over the years, services were expanded and a new facility, now called The Cambodian Family Community Center, was purchased in 2010 through the award of a $2.1 million grant from the City of Santa Ana. The center’s mission is to provide opportunities for refugee and immigrant families to develop the knowledge, skills, and desires for creating health and well-being in their lives. Services include child care, education classes, after school program, health education, screenings, immigration, and social services. TCF staff is mainly bilingual, former refugees or recent immigrants, and many were hired from the pool of former clients and neighborhood residents. 


Impact Statement

Over the last 37 years, TCF received numerous health-related grants from foundations such as Federal Office of Minority Health, The California Endowment, Foundation for the National Institute of Health, Orange County Community Foundation, the Irvine Foundation, Susan G. Komen Orange County, and many more. The center has successfully managed over $28 million of public and private funding to implement programs in the areas of community health, youth development, and civic engagement/immigration-related services. Over the last three decades, we have worked with over 40,000 refugees in Orange County and provided more than 5,500 youth affected by trauma with services to help them stay in school and away from drugs and crime; helped over 90% of disadvantaged youth graduate high school and go on to college; provided scholarships for college totaling $19,715 since 1998; placed over 15,000 refugees and immigrants in jobs; helped over 12,000 adults receive employment and supportive services; helped approximately 11,000 children and adults learn about health-promoting behaviors; improved healthcare access for disadvantaged groups; and assisted over 3,000 clients with completing and submitting N-400 citizenship forms with help from attorneys who offer their services pro bono.


Needs Statement

Our agency are in need of volunteers to help the many different programs that we offer. 


CEO Statement

TCF was founded in 1980 by a group of Cambodian refugees who are the survivors of the Cambodian genocidal regime. Our original focus was to teach newcomers English and provide social adjustment services to help refugee families recover from past trauma and learn new skills. Over the years, we have established deep roots and trust in our community and our services have been expanded to serve anyone in need from throughout Orange County and beyond.

Currently, TCF has 9 staff members and serves over 675 community members a year through three key programs/services: (1) community health/mental health, (2) youth development, and (3) civic engagement/immigration-related services. All of our programs and services are provided free of charge. Because of many generous donors and supporters like you, we were able to triple our staff capacity from 3 staff members in 2015 to 9 staff members in 2017. As a result, we were able to serve over 675 community members in 2017 compared to approximately 300 in 2015. Increasing our staff capacity and bringing culturally- and linguistically-tailored mental health services to our seniors are among our greatest accomplishments these recent years. TCF is truly fortunate and grateful to have earned your trust and support throughout the past 37 years in making a positive impact on our community.

Programs


The Healthy Changes Progam

The Healthy Changes Program (HCP) helps increase access to underserved, low-income, Limited-English-proficient Cambodian residents of Orange County. The program provides a culturally and linguistically appropriate health care/preventive health services. We also provide health information and resources through health care accessing services, health screenings, health education, and healthy living activities in the Khmer language, thereby reducing health disparities in the Cambodian community of Orange County.

Budget  200,000
Category  Health Care, General/Other Early Intervention & Prevention
Population Served Asian, Pacific Islander Heritage Elderly and/or Disabled
Program Short-Term Success 

We offered exercises classes twice a week and on average we have about 20 attending regularly. Our exercise classes and our walking club aim to stress the importance of physical activity in their daily lives. We have also partnered up with our community partner, Health Care Partner to provide free health screenings. The health screening checks for high blood pressure and glucose level. After the screening, they are able to talk to the nurse to go over their result and our bicultural and bilingual health navigator is also there to explain to the participant in the Khmer language to ensure that the participant understand their numbers and the importance of getting regular screening. We have screened 33 participants at our agency and bilingual and bicultural health navigator have taken over 20 participants to see their primary care physician so that they can get screened. Our health navigator goes with the participant to ensure that the participants understand what the numbers means as they are translating for them.

Program Long-Term Success 

Our Healthy Change Program served over 100 participants and made an impact in their life styles. We offered exercises classes twice a week and on average we have about 20 attending regularly. Our exercise classes and our walking club aim to stress the importance of physical activity in their daily lives. We have also partnered up with our community partner, Health Care Partner to provide free health screenings. The health screening checks for high blood pressure and glucose level. After the screening, they are able to talk to the nurse to go over their result and our bicultural and bilingual health navigator is also there to explain to the participant in the Khmer language to ensure that the participant understand their numbers and the importance of getting regular screening. We have screened 33 participants at our agency and bilingual and bicultural health navigator have taken over 20 participants to see their primary care physician so that they can get screened. Our health navigator goes with the participant to ensure that the participants understand what the numbers means as they are translating for them. We have also partnered up with the American Heart Association and provided heart health education in the Khmer language to over 40 community members. The Healthy Change Program has seen an increase in participant’s intake of healthy food and physical activity as each participant in the program has a baseline survey and a follow up survey to track their progress.

Program Success Monitored By 

The program is monitored by our measurement tools that were developed with the help of Cal State Fullerton professor and interns.

Examples of Program Success 

At the beginning of the program, those surveyed reported eating fruits and vegetable 2 to 3 time a week, but after learning about the importance of healthy eating, they have increased their intake to 6 to 7 times a week. By the same token, we have also seen an increase in their physical activity. At baseline, they reported on average they were exercising 3 days a week, 24 minutes each time, with an average of 75 minutes. At follow up, we saw an increase in to 6 days a week, 43 minutes each time with an average of 220 minutes per week.

The majority of our client are low income, 100% of our participant reported English as their second language. They reside mainly in Santa Ana in the Minnie Street/Bishop Manor location and many have a difficult time finding a safe and clean park to exercise in, so with our HCP, we provide a safe and clean environment to exercise and learn ways to live and happy healthy life style. The Healthy Change Program services are all held at the Cambodian Family Community Center and all services are voluntary.
