OC Family Pairing

We are so excited to launch this new program! OC Family Pairing was designed to help families in need in the specific ways that they could use the most help. Since no two families have the same story or situation, there isn't one solution that works for all of them. OC Family Pairing matches up a family that can offer to help a family in need. To join the program, each family in need fills out a form outlining their situation and needs. Then families that would like to help can review the application forms and select a family that they think they can best help.

If you are a family in need, please email us at TheHappinessProj@aol.com for an application. If you are a family that would like to help, please review our current applications below. If you identify a family that you would like to help, please email us.

Thank you so much for your support. We truly believe that this program will change the course of these children's lives forever.
