Rancho Santa Margarita is one of the newest cities in Orange County, having been incorporated on January 1, 2000. A master planned community set amongst rolling hills, the city now has nearly 50,000 residents. There are many neighborhoods in the city, including Trabuco Highlands and Melinda Heights. Rancho Cielo is one of the major homeowner associations found in this city. Although the city is now a vibrant and affluent area, in the 1700s it was inhabited by Native Americans. The first Spanish explorer to see the area, Captain Gaspar de Portola, claimed the area for Spain, and a few years later the Spaniards established the Mission San Juan Capistrano.1

Current Initiatives

Given the large number of veterans in southern California, many of whom have mental health difficulties as a result of their service, the need for accessible behavioral health services is quite high. To help meet this demand, the Orange County Community Foundation has launched the Veterans Services Initiative. The initiative seeks to help veterans transition back into civilian life by providing a host of valuable resources. Information about educational and employment opportunities is provided. Resources for identifying mental health issues such as PTSD and depression are also offered. Many other services are provided as part of the initiative. Call 949-553-4202 for more information.4
