Orange County Impact

​ Impacting Hearts creates environments in which leaders can establish real, trusting relationships with kids to offer them the love and family they need. These relationships are formed through weekly youth clubs, special events, and week-long or weekend camps. ​ As natural relationships form, our leaders turn into mentors who can walk through life with young people on a daily basis.
