Real Help... Right Here... Right Now... For families that need it most.

Covid-19 precautions

We are offering a reduced number of programs with limited numbers of participants. Please check out the program calendar and call to register. Per covid-19 precautions, you will be asked to self screen prior to attending programs. There are markings on the ground to maintain a distance of 6ft while waiting to enter the buildings, and we will screen you at the door. You will be asked to wear a mask and wash your hands. Children under 6 years in child care will not need to wear masks.

The Emergency Food Cupboard is open Fridays from 1 pm – 4 pm.  Families may access once per month and will be asked to follow COVID-19 precautions.  New grocery bags will be provided.


Our Kids Count

Our Kids Count (OKC) is a community development organization which builds stronger families and inclusive communities by enhancing people’s lives through personal growth and development.  Our core funding is aimed at fostering the health and development of children ages 6 and under. Through other funding sources and community partnerships, OKC provides support to individuals of all ages – men, women, youth (6-12), teens and families with children. OKC involves participants in all aspects of program planning, implementation, and evaluation.

In addition, we now provide the Big Brothers Big Sisters program which delivers a one to one mentoring program which ensures that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential – as an individual and as a citizen – and that by doing so they will not only do well, they will do good.  in addition, we will offer two programs “Go Girls” and “Game On”, as well as the in school mentoring program.  These would all provide new and diverse opportunities to develop the necessary skills to be a great leader.
