Our Programs

While we do financially support and partner with many other programs and agencies in the community we also operate and oversee our own, what we call, direct programs that are listed below.  


Your Dollars are making an impact! 


Backpack School Supply Program 

Each year we along with generous donors from the community provide backpacks filled with basic school supplies to local Oconee County children and teachers.  We work together to ensure every child in Oconee School starts the year with the supplies needed for a successful school year. 


Basic Needs & Diaper Program

Our basic needs (hygiene kits) and diaper program help to bridge the gap for residents in our community.  No government subsidy program allows for the purchase of hygiene or diapers, only food.  Diapering for newborns to elder care is available at our office. These items can be very expensive so our program aims to alleviate the stress of choosing between diapering a loved one and paying a light bill. 


Healthy Oconee Coalition

Healthy Oconee is dedicated to creating a thriving and healthy community in Oconee County.  Our mission is to promote a culture of health by engaging the community as partners to encourage healthy behaviors in all aspects of life.  Our goal is to support health where residents live, learn, work, worship, and play. We believe in community engagement, cultural sensitivity and responsiveness, inclusive decision-making, and data-driven interventions to achieve our vision of an active, engaged, and involved community of healthy residents. Join us in making Oconee County a better place to live for everyone! 


Senior Home Repair

Ensuring the safety and well-being of seniors in Oconee County.  We provide small minor repairs to qualifying seniors that allow them to safely remain in their homes and maintain quality of life.   


Strengthening Families

The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is an evidence-based family skills training program for high-risk and general-population families that is recognized both nationally and internationally. Parents and youth attend weekly SFP skills classes together, learning parenting skills and youth life and refusal skills. They have separate class training for parents and youth in the first hour, followed by a joint family practice session in the second hour.


Summer Feed & Read Program

We aim to impact the lives of children by extending the program to focus on improving literacy, writing, and language development in the summer months and preparing them for the upcoming school year while having fun in the process.  While the camp targets students ages 6-12 years old, all K-12 students are eligible to receive meals from the program as part of the School District of Oconee County USDA.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

A FREE tax preparation in partnership with the IRS and offered to individuals and families making $60,000 or less.  This includes many seniors and low to moderate-income families.  This helps in that it eliminates the fees for tax preparation and cash advances by keeping more money in the taxpayer's hands.
