We are committed to helping families and individuals recognize their strengths, set realistic goals, make responsible choices, and become successful, self-sufficient members of the community. OFC, Inc. programs focus on child and family development, housing security, life-skills training, education, literacy, health and nutrition, community, employment and economic development.
OFC, Inc. follows a family development services system, a way of working with families and empowering them to move out of poverty. The goal is to support families in their efforts to move from crisis situations, economic dependency and vulnerability, to an increasingly stable and economically self-supporting situation. Families are full partners in identifying their strengths, needs and with staff guidance, put together steps to attain self-sufficiency.
