My office recently kicked off our annual Future Leaders Program! My staff and I welcomed high school students to the Board Room where they received a tour of the building and some insight on the role of the Board of Supervisors and County government.

We also had presentations from two County departments. OC Public Libraries shared information on teen services and resources. OC Workforce Development gave a presentation on career exploration with fun interactive activities including a virtual reality game exploring various trades.

Thank you to all of our presenters and staff for providing our Future Leaders with an enriching tour and presentations! Stay tuned for more updates on our Future Leaders’ sessions.

Last week I attended the grand opening of three permanent supportive housing communities. Through the collaboration of the City of Stanton, County of Orange and the Jamboree Housing Corporation, we were able to transform the former motel sites into permanent supportive housing communities.

The newly established Aurora Vista, Clara Vista, and Iluma Apartments collectively provide 153 rental homes for individuals experiencing homelessness and earning up to 30% of the Area Median Income (AMI). These permanent supportive housing communities include 10 apartments for individuals with significant mental disabilities and 20 apartments for veterans. The communities, consisting of 133 studios and 17 one-bedrooms, are fully furnished with kitchenettes, and each community has an on-site manager’s units.
 
These developments were among the first in California to utilize Homekey funding from California’s Department of Housing and Community Development to convert motels and interim housing into permanent supportive housing, marking a significant milestone.
 
This development addresses the critical need for more high quality affordable housing with supportive services for those most likely to become homeless, or who are already chronically homeless.

Happy Asian American and Pacific Islander Month!

At the May 21, 2024 Board meeting I had the honor of joining my Board colleagues in recognizing the accomplishments and contributions of our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities.

The AAPI community is one the fastest growing racial group in the United States, with it growing by 81 percent between 2000 and 2019.

Here in Orange County there is about 800,000 residents of AAPI descent.

Throughout May and all year long, join us in uplifting AAPI individuals and communities and learning more of the accomplishments they have made here in the United States.
