Overview


Mission Statement

The Orange County Family Justice Center Foundation provides empowerment and prevention resources. We serve victims and families whose lives have been impacted by domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse and sexual assault. The OCFJC Foundation transforms victims into survivors and breaks the cycle of violence.

Background Statement

The Orange County Family Justice Center Foundation began as the Anaheim Family Justice Center Foundation in 2006 as a resource for families in crisis in Anaheim, CA.  In 2013 the organization received its IRS Determination Letter changing its name to the Orange County Family Justice Center Foundation ("OCFJC Foundation") and now serves all of Orange County.

The OCFJC Foundation's mission is to provide direct victim assistance, empowerment and violence prevention resources.  The OCFCJ Foundation strives to transform victims into survivors and break the cycle of violence.

Impact Statement

The Orange County Family Justice Center (OCFJC),
based in Anaheim, is a collaborative of 17 nonprofits and government agencies that serve victims of child abuse, domestic violence, elder adult abuse and sexual assault in Orange County. The OCFJC facilitates access to the services these victims need to protect themselves and their families from further violence.

An OCFJC partner, the Orange County Family Justice Center Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to provide direct victim assistance, empowerment and violence prevention resources. The OCFJC Foundation strives to transform victims into survivors and break the cycle of violence. The OCFJC Foundation operates two programs: violence prevention programs and direct victim assistance.

We know that children who witness violence at home and
in the community need to develop healthy and nonviolent strategies to respond to every-day stresses. Research indicates that children who witness violent behavior between parents, or are abused themselves, are at an increased risk of becoming abusers or victims themselves. Through our violence prevention programs, we endeavor to provide the tools and resources that our victims and families need to protect themselves and their families from succumbing to future violence or becoming abusers themselves.

In October 2011, we launched Kids Creating Change, now
a 30-hour program, that empowers children with the necessary knowledge and skills to break this destructive cycle of abuse. This program covers defining physical and emotional violence, coping with stress, conflict resolution, playground bullying, being a good friend, physical fitness and effective parenting skills
(combined parents and children, with breakout sessions).

In July 2012, we launched Real Teens/Real Talk, now a 30-hour program, targeted at teenagers ages 13-18. This program covers self-esteem, communication, goal-setting, college preparation, healthy relationships, anger management, anti-bullying and setting boundaries. As of June 2015, 817 children have graduated from our 48 Kids Creating Change and 24 Real Teens/Real Talk programs.  We have re-engaged with 278 of these graduates through our 4-hour Booster Program, and we have a 9-member Youth Advisory Board whose members are championing awareness and the prevention of family violence among teenagers.

In September 2014 we launched Women Over Violence to empower women facing domestic violence with the tools to help break the cycle of violence and have graduated 42 women from this program. And finally, in 2015 we launched Parents Creating Change to foster positive parenting, self-esteem, conflict resolution, life skills and healthy relationships for parents. 
In January 2015 we hired a full time Programs Director to oversee our ever growing and highly requested programs.  At the close of calendar year 2015 we determined that our programs needed to cover additional topics so they all increased from 20 hour programs to 30 hour programs. Additionally, we are collaberating with the University of California, Irvine to evaluate our curriculum and programs to insure and evaluate their effectiveness.  We anticipate adding a mentoring program in calendar 2016 as well as increasing our College Prepatory courses and summer camp programs.  The foundation also provides direct victim assistance through a variety of programs, some of which include a back-to-school program through which approximately 40 school age children receive school supplies and school clothes for the coming school year.  We adopt approximately 40 low-income families during the holidays, send youth to various local summer camps and provide additional direct assistance as needed.  Most, if not all of the recipients of our direct assistance, have graduated from our violence prevention programs.

Needs Statement

We are looking for individual, corporate and foundation partners to help us expand our programs to reach even more families in crisis. Our violence prevention programs, both for youth and adults, are in high demand and in order to meet that demand we need to continue to raise funds to meet these challenges in our community.

CEO Statement

The Orange County Family Justice Center Foundation is in a unique position in the community to help victims of family violence by being a partner at the Orange County Family Justice Center.  The center helps approximately 4500 victims of family violence annually in Orange County.  We know that many of these victims would succumb to future violence or repeat the cycle themselves without intervention.  The OCFJC Foundation strives to be that intervention and it provides programs that educate and empower, both youth and adults, with the tools and resources to deal with the stresses of life in a healthy and positive way.  We provide our violence prevention programs at the Family Justice Center, in schools and at a variety of locations throughout our community.   Additionally, the Foundation provides direct victim assistance in the form of immediate needs when clients are in crisis, it adopts needy families during the holidays and provides back to school supplies to children in need.

Programs


Youth Violence Prevention Programs

In October 2011, we launched Kids Creating Change, now a 30-hour program, that empowers children with the necessary knowledge and skills to break the destructive  cycle of abuse.  This program covers defining physical and emotional violence, coping with stress, conflict resolution, playground bullying, being a good friend, physical fitness and effective parenting (which is taught in conjunction with parents).
In July 2012,we launched Real Teens/Real Talk, now a 30-hour program, targeted at teenagers ages 13-18.
This program covers self-esteem, communication, goal-setting, college preparation, healthy relationships, anger management, anti-bullying and setting boundaries.  As of June 2015, 817 children have graduated from our 48 Kids Creating program and from our 24 Real Teens/ Real Talk program.  We have re-engaged with 278 of these youth graduates through our Booster Programs, and we have a 9-member Youth Advisory Board whose members are championing awareness and the prevention of family violence among teenagers. 
We offer college prepatory classes throughout the summer to provide familiarity with the college application and financial aid process to our youth, many of whom will be the first in their family to apply to college.  
Additionally we partner with GRIP and CSP to offer Girls Club in a number of local middle schools in Orange County.  
 
Our budget includes staff time to manage the programs.
Budget  $90,500.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Development, General/Other
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  Over 75% of our graduates are demonstrating improvements in knowledge. 
Program Long-Term Success 
We expanded to offer programs for teenagers, so we could positively impact entire families.  We know violence in the home uniquely impacts youth, depending on their age. 
 
One long-term goal is for at-risk youth to attend multiple programs, as they mature; for instance, a child at age 8 could participate in our program for 5-8 year olds, at age 10, s/he could return for the program for 9-12 year olds and so on.
 
Another long-term goal is for graduating teenagers to become facilitators of the program.  We are starting this process, by engaging teenagers as volunteers to the younger children.  We hope to have peer education models in place in the upcoming years.  And, it would be a wonderful statement for a future facilitator to be a graduate of at least one of the programs.
 
Program Success Monitored By  We use pre and post tests of the key lessons in the programs to identify knowledge change.  We are in the early stages of revising this instrument so we can accurate evaluate our impact. 

We are also engaging the teens, who graduate from Real Teens/Real Talk, as volunteer leaders to break the cycle of violence in future generations.
Examples of Program Success  One teen in our Youth Advisory Board graduated from our first Kids Creating Change program in late 2011, when she was 12.
 
One of our facilitators is a survivor of family violence and her daughter graduated from our summer 2012 Kids Creating Change program.

Back To School Program

We provide a $125 clothing shopping spree and $50 in school supplies (including a backpack) for 40 low-income children.  All participating children have graduated from our Kids Creating Change or Real Teens Real Talk programs.  

Our program budget includes staff time to manage the program.
Budget  $7,500.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Development, General/Other
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  The short-term successes are that the neediest of our children have new clothes and school supplies, so that they are ready for academic success.  We select these families because we know they lack the most basic resources.
Program Long-Term Success  Ideally, these children are able to stay in contact with us, extending our positive impact on them.  It provides another touch point, so they can access any additional violence prevention services.  Ideally, these families would be inspired to continue on their path of independence from violence, by having at least a couple basic needs met.
Program Success Monitored By  Over 40 volunteers are onsite to shop with the children. 
Examples of Program Success  Several of our children will show up after the Back To School program wearing the clothes we provided.  One mother told us that she was scared to return to her abuser (husband) who had all the children's backpacks and most of their clothing.  Thanks to this program, she didn't have to face her abuser. 

Adopt A Family Program

We adopt approximately 40 families each year for the holidays.  These families have at least one child who has participated in our youth violence prevention program.  Donors will adopt a family and buy the gifts for the family.  Skechers, Disney, Anaheim Fire & Rescue, among others, contribute to the event.
 
Our budget is very modest, as most contributions are made in-kind.  This budget represents the minimum staff time needed to make the event possible.
Budget  $5,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Children & Youth Services
Population Served Families
Program Short-Term Success  Families - particularly those that have recently separated from an abuser (who is often the provider) - can have a brighter holiday season.  Many newly single parents struggle just to put food on the table - gifts are a luxury.
Program Long-Term Success  Ideally, families would be inspired to continue living free of violence.  They would remember the kindness of strangers and would be inspired to continue working hard to change their circumstances for the better.
Program Success Monitored By  We keep track of the families who attend and share photos with the donors.
Examples of Program Success  Two young sisters, whose entire family was adopted, thanked us in writing for your generosity (note is copied verbatim): 

"Today you made my heart happy and I want to go on with your example, wich is see someone smile, have a happy heart, and be full of joy.  I will never forget this day.  Thank you."

Women Over Violence

Our 20-hour program is designed for adults who have experienced or are experiencing family violence in their own lives.  We strengthen communities, increase awareness about the cycle of violence, foster leadership roles and support women in their journey to healing. 

Topics include:  self-esteem, leadership, education and community advocacy.

Our budget includes staff time to administer and lead the project.
Budget  $15,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Parenting Education
Population Served At-Risk Populations Females
Program Short-Term Success  We will provide 3 programs (each program is 20 hours) and we hope to reach 10 women through these courses.
Program Long-Term Success  Empower women who have experienced/currently experiencing family violence break the cycle of violence in their own lives by ending unhealthy relationships and avoiding unhealthy relationships in the future.
Program Success Monitored By  We are developing a pre and post test assessment.
Examples of Program Success  One woman who graduated from our first program shared that had it not been for this class, she would have returned to her abusive husband, of over 25 years.

Our facilitator herself is a survivor of family violence, which she experienced on 3 continents.  As a result, she relocated to Southern California.  As her children struggled to overcome the exposure to violence, she brought them to our Kids Creating Change program in early 2013 and they participated in our Back To School and Adopt A Family programs.  We identified her talent for empowering peers and she developed this program.  She also facilitates our youth violence prevention programs.

Parents Creating Change

In 2015 we launched Parents Creating Change to foster positive parenting, self-esteem, conflict resolution, life skills and healthy relationships. 
Budget  $15,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Human Services, General/Other
Population Served Adults Families
Program Short-Term Success  We perform pre and post program evaluations with our participants.  We have received positive feedback and participants report that the skills and tools taught help them to utilize more positive and healthy coping mechanisms and ultimately lead to happier and more harmonious families.
Program Long-Term Success  This program was just launched in 2015 and thus we do not yet have long term success results to report.  We are very pleased with the feedback provided by our early participants.
Program Success Monitored By  We utilize questionnaires prior to the beginning of a program and then we administer a questionnaire after the completion of the program.  This helps us to evaluate the participants understanding of the topics covered, the understanding achieved and ways to improve our curriculum.
Examples of Program Success  Many of our participants report utilizing the tools taught in class to successfully manage the daily stressors in their life.
