FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR:
Thank you for being interested in One Can Help.
OCH was created by juvenile court attorneys and social workers who wanted to find a way to better support the underserved children and families they worked with in the juvenile court and child welfare system.
So many times they saw how little the at-risk youth, foster children and underserved families they worked with believed that if only some specific resource was available right now, it would help so much; but many times, that resource just could not be found.
Sometimes the resources that are needed are just the type of things we give our children: like art supplies, dance lessons or basketball equipment.
Other times the resource needed are game changers: like emergency rent to prevent a family from becoming homeless during a temporary crisis. And sometimes, justice itself actually hinges on whether or not some resource can be found. Even one costing as little as $25.00!
