NWOC Newsletter – December 2023

As we bid farewell to 2023, the NWOC team would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to each of you for your unwavering support throughout this incredible year.

Together, we've achieved remarkable milestones and made a positive impact in our community.

Your dedication has been the driving force behind our successes, and we're excited to share some highlights with you as we look forward to an even more promising 2024.

Year in Review: Stats, Mission, and Vision

In 2023, NWOC served over 1,200 unduplicated individuals, helping them achieve, learn about, and maintain homeownership.

These numbers fuel our continued commitment to our mission of building wealth through homeownership.

As we revisit our mission and vision going into 2024, we are reminded of the profound impact we can make when we come together as a community.

What Your Donation Can Do

Looking toward next year, we thought it would be beneficial and encouraging to remind you of just how important and valuable your donation is to our communities:


provides a first-time homebuyer the opportunity of attending a HUD Approved Homebuyer Education (valued at $1500)


provides working families access to a comprehensive credit report to track financial benchmarks


allows seniors the opportunity to access the required HECM Counseling to age in-place



Our team enjoyed meeting with you at our events this year! Below is a quick recap of a few major events we hosted.

45th Year Anniversary Celebration

This year, NeighborWorks Orange County marked its 45th anniversary with a "Back to the 70s" themed event, uniting over 170 guests, including community leaders and partners, in a nostalgic celebration of camaraderie. 

A highlight was Josh Alvarez's testimonial, underlining NWOC's profound local impact and resonating with attendees, reinforcing their commitment to the organization's mission. 

Homebuyer Day 2023

NWOC's Homebuyer Day at 250 E. Center Street, Anaheim, CA, offered crucial resources for first-time homebuyers, drawing participants from Orange County and beyond.

The event, open to the public, exemplified NWOC's commitment to providing free and accessible resources, including counseling sessions on down payment assistance, lending products, and complimentary credit reports.

Helen's Podcast Feature on Impact OC

In 2023, our very own President and CEO Helen O’Sullivan had the honor of being featured on the Impact OC podcast.

Her insights into homeownership, financial wellness, and community development have resonated far and wide.
