The Community Building Initiative (CBI) is a three-year project with focus on resident-based capacity to determine and implement positive change in low income communities. This initiative is currently beginning the second year of implementation of a community plan aimed at reducing crime in the community. This capacity is developed through community-based work on issues of concern to the residents.
OCHR is currently seeking to hire staff to support the engagement and organizing of residents in a neighborhood on the Westside of Anaheim.
