Fairhaven has always been part of the community, and as such has a responsibility to care for those in need. The O.L. Halsell Foundation supports charitable organizations throughout Orange County. In addition, many of the staff are involved with Rotary, Kiwanis, the Boy Scouts’ Explorers Program, Laguna College of Art and Design, the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Ana, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Agewell Senior Services, Mission Viejo Community Foundation, Mission Viejo Friends of the Arts, OC Walk to Remember, the Elks Lodge, and the Alzheimer’s Association.
Church volunteerism is also an important part of the staff’s activities. Often during the holidays, to help provide for those less fortunate, the staff collects toys for a local children’s home or adopts a family or senior citizen.
"Fairhaven Memorial Park and Mortuary arranged the funeral for my dear wife Jessie. The preparation of every detail was very well done and the appearance of my wife was just beautiful. The Father did a great job speaking about Jessie’s life. Also the soloist and the organist added a nice touch to the funeral. The funeral was handled in a very professional manner and I wanted to express my satisfaction. "
