Volunteer Network OC

Volunteer Network OC Volunteer Network OC - Helping You Help Others Our goal is to help individuals and families who are in need of shelter, food, clothing and other basic necessities.
(2)

We have identified four pieces to the puzzle to end poverty and homelessness: (a) government, non-profit and community organizations who directly serve the poor and homeless populations in Orange County; (b) support organizations, such as food banks, who assist those organizations (together, those organizations and the support organizations are referred to as the β€œShelter Community”); (c) donors who fund the activities of the Shelter Community, and (d) volunteers who serve under the guidance of the Shelter Community. We wish to bridge the gap between the Shelter Community and the public through a social media platform designed to make volunteering easy and accessible to everyone. Additionally, we wish to educate the public about the people who need and deserve our help and the incredible people and organizations serving in the Shelter Community. Their stories are inspiring!

Our Story

A few years ago, when volunteering at Loaves & Fishes one Saturday morning, our Founder, William Cates, developed a concept to both encourage volunteerism in Orange County and help nonprofits in the shelter community, i.e., the charities helping disadvantaged, poor and homeless populations in Orange County. It started as a website to identify those local charities and tell their stories, but it quickly evolved into a dynamic mobile app. With our app, a volunteer can find volunteer opportunities and sign up to serve in less than a minute. It’s Volunteering Made Easy!

At Volunteer Network OC, we believe a community that cares about one another, takes time to help one another, and has compassion for the plight of others, is a stronger, healthier community. We strive to make Orange County a better community by encouraging people to get involved. We do it through our app and website, and through social media, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We hope that, with the information available on our social media platform, individuals who typically do not volunteer will be inspired to get involved and make a difference in our community.

Our website is www.volunteernetworkoc.org. If you ever wondered about the nonprofits who serve disadvantaged members of our community, the information is available there. We have done the work for you by researching, collecting information and writing about each organization. Many started with a simple gesture from one person to another and grew to be a significant resource for those who need a little help. We are proud to share this information with our viewers.

Our goal is to help nonprofits without ever charging them for our services. It is and will always be a free service to organizations and volunteers alike. To make this happen, the officers and board members have invested thousands of hours and substantial funds in this project. The officers and board members do not directly or indirectly receive compensation or any other personal benefit from Volunteer Network OC. It is strictly a volunteer commitment from them.

The Volunteer Network OC is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization; EIN 47-4804604. Donations are tax deductible.
