About Us

Cooperacion Santa Ana offers training, coaching and incubation, and hosts a cooperative network and fund governed by cooperatives of Orange County.  We believe that worker cooperatives offer an asset building opportunity to those who may be ineligible for employment, or lack the access to capital, and that the deep democracy embedded in cooperatives transforms entire communities and local economies. 

Cooperación Santa Ana envisions a strong, locally-owned, shared economy where products and services are created with dignity and respect for the people that work them and the planet that sustains us. In Santa Ana and Orange County, we envision collectively addressing the foregone needs of people of color and low-income families through enterprises and businesses democratically owned and operated by them, networked in solidarity with each other, and supportive of their communities.
