“My children, love must not be a matter of words or talk; it must be genuine and show itself in action.” (John 3:17-18)
We are organized so that families and institutions have a way to respond to the economic, political, social and cultural pressures we are facing. We want to make positive changes in the community that will make Orange County a better place to live and work.
St. Thomas More and 25 other faith-based organizations/institutions come together to work for the common good. We are called Orange County Justice United in Community Effort – Justice United, for short.
Our Action Teams have worked diligently and have accomplished the following:
Listening to the families in our community to determine the concerns and issues that need to be addressed, researching the solutions and presenting the information to the community to affect change.
A strategy team meets the first Thursday of the month at Empowerment, Inc.
Besides our monthly strategy team meetings, there are countywide leaders meetings held every 90 days and an annual meeting held usually in October-December to determine our direction and future work.
Estimated Time Commitment for Volunteers
One 2-hour meeting per month and two-three major events per year. The time commitment will depend upon the issue being researched and how the members would like to work together.
None are needed; Members need only an interest in helping those in need.
