2022 CHARITY BENEFICIARIES
Our Community Our Kids (OCOK), a division of ACH Child and Family Services, has provided a continuum of services for children in the Texas foster care system of Region 3b since 2014. As a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, OCOK is contracted with Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) as a Single Source Continuum Contractor (SSCC) to expand Community-Based Care (CBC) in the Region.
Community-Based Care (CBC) is a new way of providing foster care services which gives local communities the flexibility and authority to improve the system. Our pioneering work has delivered improvements for abused and neglected children in many ways including helping children stay safe while in care, placing them close to home and in family settings, and keeping them stable in placement.
The mission of Serenity Transformation Home is to provide a safe, nurturing, and loving shelter during pregnancy and after giving birth for young, at-risk mothers and their babies. In partnership with the community, we are dedicated to improving daily living skills with focus on parenting, education, positive self-esteem, as well as unwanted pregnancy prevention.
