Your donations can help OCES assist older adults and individuals with disabilities who are in need! Frequently, people encounter situations that can seriously jeopardize their ability to maintain their independence. When public funding falls short, we rely on your donations to support our community, your neighbors, in their time of need.
OCES provides in-home, community-based services and support to individuals to help them maintain their independence and remain at home. Your contributions support services like homemakers, home health aides, home-delivered and congregate meals, laundry and food shopping. OCES also uses your donations to assist people in emergency situations. For example, with your generous contribution OCES could purchase life-sustaining medications, food, heat or partial furnace replacement or repair.
OCES is a 501(c)(3) private nonprofit corporation; your donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
Members of the Development Committee say “Thank You” to everyone who donated to this year’s #GivingTuesday Campaign to help OCES keep our consumers #SafeAndWarm.

This year we raised $7,714, a net increase of $312 over last year’s total. We are grateful to everyone who donated so generously to our campaign.
We are especially thankful to our employees, whose $1,135 in donations earned us a full $1,000 match from a private family foundation. Remember, even though #GivingTuesday is over, you can donate any time during the year to our Emergency Funds!
