What are special memories you have of your journey with OCAPICA?
Two decades ago, OCAPICA was just a dream with hope. An idea that needed a community to discover the possibilities of helping people and transforming communities. We wanted to empower the community to create change, address inequality and promote civil rights, build healthy communities, bring economic opportunities and to grow new generations of leaders. That dream has blossomed into a strong viable force with the support of the community. together, we are making a difference in the lives of people who need our help the most. We are there for each other. OCAPICA plays an important role in convening key community leaders to work on issues and to find solutions.

Over the past two decades, there are many staff who have touched my heart and their work has made an impact on community needs. I don’t want to leave anyone out. It is also wonderful that I can still work with them in the community in other capacity. while they developed their skills at OCAPICA, they have come into their own with new achievements and leadership so many diverse fields. Fight on!!!!
