Helping Laguna Beach and Mission Viejo Stay Healthy
Mission Hospital has an established history of community service for the residents of South Orange County. We are committed to improving the health and quality of life of the people we serve. In the past five years, we have allocated more than $120 million to community benefit activities. A cornerstone of the work we do is through partnerships, working with others “of like minds” to create change. We work with dozens of local non-profits, faith-based organizations, civic leaders and local residents to understand and respond to the needs of the community.

Each Mind Matters
When it comes to health, peoples’ minds deserve the same attention as their bodies. That’s why Mission Hospital is activating Each Mind Matters, California’s Mental Health Movement, in South Orange County. The statewide initiative was created to unite millions of individuals who share a vision of improved mental health and equality for all.
Family Resource Centers (FRCs)
Established in 1996, the South Orange County Family Resource Center (SOCFRC) has been serving approximately 5,000 people each year. In 1998, the Community Health Enrichment Collaborative Family Resource Center (CHEC FRC) opened to better serve the residents of San Juan Capistrano and neighboring communities. The Family Resource Centers bring together services and activities that educate, support and provide resources for families in need.
Programs include parent, teen and child education classes, support groups, counseling services, and information/resources. Many programs are offered in Spanish and can be provided in the community at local schools, churches or in home. The Family Resource Centers are a collaborative effort between Mission Hospital, The Raise Foundation, Children’s Bureau of Southern California, Human Options and a variety of other social service agencies.
