Our Kids Count (OKC) is a grass-roots community development organization and we work with individuals & families to promote the health and development of all children and youth who are in financial need. Our programs are built on needs identified by the families we serve and include community kitchens, parenting & life skills workshops, pre/post-natal support, home visiting, the emergency food cupboard, Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring, and counselling.
We believe when parents are given the right set of tools, children succeed. We believe programs should develop self-esteem, peer leadership, and support, and should be flexible, economical, and accessible. OKC has been in operation since 1995 and received a charitable designation in April of 1998 and we partner with many organizations to ensure that families and individuals can receive the support they are looking for.
