Santa Ana is the heart of Orange County.

It is also home to some of the most challenging neighborhoods. But there is hope. KidWorks serves over 800 children, youth, and parents through weekly programs and over 4,000 community members annually at four learning centers in central Santa Ana. 

We are developing leaders who want to make a difference in their community. 


Our story

KidWorks was founded in 1993 in an apartment on Townsend St. as a summer club to keep students off the street. We have grown to four learning centers in the heart of Santa Ana.

Our volunteers are the life blood of KidWorks. Last year, volunteers gave 15,619 hours of their time. An hour of your time each week could result in a brighter future for a child in Santa Ana.
