About Our Outreach Program

Our outreach program, formerly known as EOTC, has been dedicated to helping families thrive since 1988. We offer a wide range of services and programs that focus on family development, community resources, and empowerment. Through our commitment to building strong families, we believe we can contribute to building strong communities.

That is why we provide a diverse range of resources and support, tailored to meet those unique needs. Whether it’s life skills resources, literacy programs, employment training, parenting support, early childhood education, or youth mentoring, we aim to provide comprehensive assistance to families.

We believe that strong families are the foundation of strong communities. By empowering families with the necessary tools and resources, we foster an environment where individuals can thrive and contribute positively to their communities.
