Mission Statement

Founded in 2005, Oak View Renewal Partnership (OVRP) is a community-based organization focused on the renewal and empowerment of low-income neighborhoods, utilizing the Oak View community in Huntington Beach, CA as its prototype for systemic change. OVRP has evolved into CIELO - Community for Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Leadership & Opportunities.

Background Statement

 

OVRP’s founder, Jack Shaw first began working in the Oak View neighborhood in 1997 when, inspired by the “I Have a Dream” Foundation in Harlem, Shaw and his wife started an academic program in the neighborhood. The program’s success led Shaw to consider the overall condition of the neighborhood and why, after the delivery of millions of dollars in social services, it was still mired in poverty. Shaw found that the only way to improve the neighborhood’s outlook was to develop a community initiative in which residents were actively involved. As a result, Shaw founded OVRP on the philosophy that sustainable change cannot be achieved through service provision alone, but through active engagement, accountability, and leadership from the community we serve.

Over the course of OVRP’s ten years of work in Oak View, we’ve helped to empower many residents to become leaders of their community, relying on their guidance to identify needs and opportunities. Working together, Oak View has become a safer, healthier, better educated, and more aware community.

In 2013 OVRP realized there was a need to assist individuals with economic stability and wanted to surround them with services to support micro-enterprises. CIELO was born and has rapidly expanded to serve the greater Orange County underserved population. 

 


Impact Statement

With the support of our community partners CIELO accomplished the following in 2016:

  • Served 350 clients.
  • Launched 18 businesses
  • Assisted 8 existing businesses turn around their current businesses.
  • Helped 75 people obtain jobs.
  • Helped our clients gain access to nearly $1million in capital.

 

Needs Statement

1. General operating support 
2. Financial support of the CIELO program growth
3. High value volunteers to assist in programs

Examples of Program Success 



Career Training

For participants who are seeking higher-paying careers, we help them figure out what their gaps in skills or knowledge are and how to obtain what they need to become better job candidates. If any participants need training that CIELO does not offer, we connect them to community partners that excel in those areas of need. For instance, participants who are seeking to grow in a machining or automotive career are connected to Urban Workshop, where they can take low-cost classes in how to use and master tools and equipment related to those fields. We then help them find a job in their chosen fields or help them through the process of requesting a pay raise or job promotion.

Program Success Monitored By 

We track our community progress through our proprietary measurement tool, the Community Wellness Index (CWI). The CWI was developed in partnership with California State University, Fullerton’s Center for Demographic Research to measure OVRP’s collaborative impact on narrowing the cultural, social, educational, health, and economic gaps between the Oak View community, the City of Huntington Beach, and Orange County in general. CWI tracks metrics on topics such as childhood obesity, average fitness scores, poverty, and employment. Data for CWI analysis is pulled from secondary data from the US Census, local police department, and local school districts. Data analysis is managed by OVRP.
