Santa Ana is a tough place to live. According to the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute, Santa Ana is the hardest city to survive in America.
The ranking is based on poverty levels, crime, employment opportunities, transportation and health conditions.
But there is hope, thanks to community organizations like KidWorks. The Santa Ana-based nonprofit serves over 800 children, youth, and parents through weekly programs and over 3,000 community members from three learning centers each year. They are developing leaders who want to make a difference in their community.
On Aug. 25, KidWorks held an open house and fundraiser in Santa Ana. The organization is looking to expand its building and offer programs for 300 more than children who are on the waiting list. Jorge Arguello from Excelsior was present at the event, and so was Sandra Baltazar Martinez from La Prensa.
