Community Relations

If you are a parent struggling with an adult or younger child headed down the wrong path or dealing with substance abuse, emotional and other issues, the BILY Parent Support Group can help.  

BILY, which stands for “Because I Love You,” is now offering confidential support for Mission Viejo parents designed to provide the tools necessary for establishing structure for healthy and cooperative family relationships.

As COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to increase, Governor Gavin Newsom Monday announced additional closures – effective immediately – across the state and for counties on the watch list.

In Orange County, dine-in restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, fitness centers, worship services, offices for non-essential sectors, personal care services (like nail salons, body waxing and tattoo parlors), hair salons and barbershops and malls must close.  Additionally, bars, brewpubs, breweries and pubs must close all operations both indoor and outdoor statewide.

The City is seeking donations of diapers and baby wipes through the Drive-Through Food Assistance Programs of Families Forward and Family Assistance Ministries. 

You can help families in need during this COVID-19 crisis by dropping off diapers in sizes 3, 4, 5 and 6 and wipes from 9-11 am on Saturday, July 11 and July 25 at the Norman P. Murray Community Center. 

For this drop-and-go event, please remain in your vehicle and place donations in the trunk of your vehicle.

The Mission Viejo Activities Committee is moving forward with a July 4th Fireworks Spectacular show launched from the Marty Russo Youth Athletic Park. 

“We are hosting this event because we know it’s been a patriotic staple to countless residents who enjoy it from their homes,” said MVAC President, Adi Mitchell. “While we are all adhering to State guidelines, we encourage residents to either view the fireworks from home (if they can), or choose an alternative location where they can safely watch from their vehicles and socially distance.”

In an effort to help residents impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and give others a chance to give back, the City is hosting another Food Drive on Saturday, June 27.

The Food Drive is from 9 am to 11 am at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center, 24932 Veterans Way.

With COVID-19 transforming community events across the country into virtual celebrations, Mission Viejo Police Services and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department are creating a virtual event to celebrate this year’s National Night Out.

Traditionally held on the first Tuesday in August, National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community.

People with or without symptoms of COVID-19 can obtain a free assessment and testing through the OC COVID-19 Testing Network. 

The network includes community health centers throughout the County that offer testing and care, even if you don’t have health insurance. If you test positive, your close contacts (folks who’ve been within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes) will be tested or referred to another location for testing. 

In an ongoing effort to recognize the amazing healthcare workers and first responders on the front lines, the City created and installed a large art project along Crown Valley Parkway.

This is the second phase of the project dubbed “Gratitude Letters to Honor Healthcare Workers” that called for volunteer groups painting letters spelling “thank you” measuring 4 feet by 8 feet.  The first phase was installed near Mission Hospital.
