Neighborhood Centers

OACAC Neighborhood Centers are “the point of entry” for those in need of services. After making an appointment at one of our Centers, a Family Resource Specialist will meet with you and discuss your situation and refer you to the OACAC community programs that can help.

Assistance is available for emergency and non-emergency needs. Income-eligibility and conditions apply.

As a non-profit organization, OACAC relies on grants, donations and federal and state funding. Some services may not be offered at all times, depending on available funds.

Neighborhood Center Services

The following services are offered through our Neighborhood Centers:
• Case Management • Emergency Assistance • School Readiness Fairs
• Life Skills Classes • Community Projects

Case Management
A program providing support to address barriers which may be getting in the way of self-sufficiency. This long term program focuses on helping you achieve your education and employment goals, such as obtaining a GED. Upon entering Case Management, you will work one-on-one with a Family Resource Specialist to identify strengths and create a plan to help you achieve your goals and move toward self-sufficiency.

Life Skills Classes
At OACAC, we want you to succeed, and we offer a variety of classes throughout the year aimed at helping you overcome obstacles resulting from poverty. Workshops cover many subjects including:

  • Finding and Keeping a Job
  • Budgeting
  • Money Management
  • Nutrition
  • Health Management
  • Parenting Skills
