Who We Are

The Office for Creative Connections is a community outreach program at All Saints Church of Pasadena, California. Established in 1983, OCC's primary focus has been issues affecting children and youth.

Our Mission Statement

OCC's mission is to identify urban needs and resources by listening to people in the Pasadena area and then to build on the strengths of our community by bringing together individuals, organizations, and agencies.

We spent two years studying organizations serving children and youth in our area. Our office began by identifying the need for after school programs, or "something for kids to do," and then located the programs by listening to people and recognizing the strengths within our community. The overall goal of this project is to improve the outreach and access to after school programs for children and youth. is a way for students, parents, teachers and mentors to learn about after-school opportunities for children and youth in and around Pasadena, California.
