Envisioning Change in Central Santa Ana

In May 2009, Central Santa Ana was selected as one of 14 sites to participate in The California Endowment’s Building Healthy Communities Initiative.  This award and designation launched an unprecedented effort to engage community residents, youth, public entities, schools, businesses, service providers, and non-profit organizations in the development of a ten year plan to build a healthy Central Santa Ana. 

  • The Santa Ana Building Healthy Communities (SABHC) intervention area has an estimated population of 91,513.
  • The estimated population of the SABHC target area includes 33,691 children living in 11,423 families.
  • Approximately 24% of families in the SABHC area are single parent households and 26% live in poverty.  
  • Central Santa Ana is also more ethnically and linguistically homogenous than the city overall.
  •  The intervention area is approximately 94% Latino and 88% Spanish-speaking.
