Churm Media CEO and publisher of OC Metro and OC Family Magazines, Steve Churm and his family are being recognized for their long-time support of Human Options and commitment to ending the cycle of domestic violence. Churm’s late mother Carolyn Churm was one of Human Options four co-founders in 1981 along with Anne Wright, Margaret Thoreau and Vivian Clecak, the organization’s current CEO.
Steve Churm currently serves on the Human Options board and is chairman of the Men’s Task Force. In his publishing role, he’s supported the organization’s mission of ending the cycle of domestic violence with a significant donation of time and advertising support over the years.
Churm’s daughters Katie Danielson and Carli Churm are both active members of Human Options’ young professional support group yHope. His late father Peter and son Logan were supporters of the 100 Men Campaign which makes a public statement against domestic violence in schools and throughout the community.
