How do we become an RSVP partner agency?

The first step is to contact us. OneOC is happy to discuss the requirements and application process. As the number of stations we can work with are limited by our federal grant, we will only accept into the program those organizations that can help us meet our current needs. We work with nonprofits, public agencies, proprietary healthcare and faith-based organizations. We are especially interested in working with those in areas that address our primary service areas: Education, Health & Nutrition and Public Safety Programs.
