About

CHI OC, a member of the statewide community of CHI’s, is committed to enrolling children and families into health care and social services programs. With our healthcare leaders, partners, and donors we work together on a mission to implement, support and coordinate county-wide programs to provide health care access to the uninsured and underserved children and families. CHI OC’s focus is Outreach, Enrollment, Retention and Utilization.

Our Mission

To connect all children and families to affordable and quality health care and social services.

Our Vision

All children in Orange County need access to basic health coverage because “A child’s good health is the foundation for a lifetime of opportunity and success.”

Our Goals

  • To find and assist all children and families without healthcare
  • To educate families about healthcare programs and the value of preventive care
  • To ensure that each child has a health home with a primary physician and dentist
  • To help families utilize and retain access to healthcare services

Notable Facts
