Help O.C.E.A.N., Inc. Shape a Child's Future
April 05, 2017
For over 52 Years, O.C.E.A.N., Inc. has been serving disadvantaged residents throughout Ocean, Monmouth, Atlantic and Cape May Counties. The mission of O.C.E.A.N., Inc. is to provide quality and comprehensive services that improve the quality of life of individuals and families and assist them in moving toward self-sufficiency.
The agency staff works hard to assist children from disadvantaged families become self-sufficient through our Head Start Program however Head Start funding alone does not cover all the needs of our children. We need to do more for these families and their children who are earning below 100% of the poverty guidelines. (Example: a family of 4 earning less than $24,600 annually).
For the preschool children to become school ready they require speech therapy, vision, dental, fatherhood initiative programs and obesity health outreach to ensure they are ready to learn. The money raised through this effort will assist us in providing these programs.
Thank you for your support by helping in bettering our communities and the lives of our Head Start children and their families.
