Our mission is to help those who have served our nation by providing services & benefits that they have rightfully earned.

We will be here for them just as they were there for all of us!

Veterans First OC is the only nonprofit 501C (3) in Orange County that provides services and housing exclusively to Orange County’s Veterans.

Veterans First OC strongly believes the most effective programs to assist veterans is through "veterans helping veterans" model within a structured, substance-free environment with fellow veterans who are succeeding on the path of bettering themselves. 100% of our staff are combat Post 9-11 veterans.

If you know of a veteran or family of deployed military that are in need of any of our services, please tell them to give us a call.
