The Big Ones

If 30 years of educating children has taught us anything, it is that one cannot expect a child to thrive if there aren’t immediate supports in place for parents and families. In response, ACOC has developed a comprehensive array of youth and adult education programs, family strengthening services, and job training opportunities that consist of: Adult Basic Education/GED preparation; job readiness and workforce development skills training; individual/family counseling, parenting skills training; and strategies to meet basic needs for food (bagged groceries) and clothing (clothing bank); direct emergency financial assistance for overdue rent, mortgage and utility bills; access to computers; and, job search supports. As any adult or parent will tell you, there is no greater sense of worth when you are able put food on the table, keep the utilities on, have a child that is healthy and doing well in school, and having a job to go to. This is what ACOC strives to accomplish every day
