The Orange County Housing Opportunities Collaborative (formerly known as OC HOPC) is a coalition of HUD-Approved Housing Counseling Nonprofit Agencies, fair housing, social service, city and local government representatives including business associations and other nonprofits that promote housing opportunities. Started in June 2007, OC HOC's mission is to promote and preserve the dream of home ownership through outreach, education, counseling, and financing. OCHOPC promotes equal access to housing for all persons in the region, especially low income and underprivileged individuals and families, by educating the public concerning home ownership and important housing related topics.
OC HOC is the Orange County Hub of the Housing Opportunities Collaborative (HOC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization consisting of HUD approved housing counseling agencies, community and nonprofit organizations, and city jurisdictions that support all aspects of homeownership and housing rights and responsibilities. The mainstay for OCHOPC is assisting distressed homeowners with resolving their housing issues and we do that best with our Free Home Preservation Workshops. The goal of OC HOC’s Home Preservation Workshops is to provide a one-stop center for various housing counseling services, which includes: access to information about foreclosure prevention options, bankruptcy, real estate violations, foreclosure scams and fraud, and, referrals to law enforcement agencies if criminal violations have occurred to help give homeowners additional relief. Also, group presentations on foreclosure prevention options including loan modifications, repayment plans, short sales, deed in lieu; credit issues, bankruptcy, and consumer protection resources are also provide by OC HOC nonprofit partners that are all HUD-Approved or Certified Housing Counseling Agencies. OCHOPC also provides housing education on the Home Buying process, Recovery After Foreclosure and Housing Industry trainings to keep up to date on the latest programs. OC HOC welcomes you and looks forward to providing you wth the most comprehensive housing information.
