I have had the great fortune of being involved with The Oaks Family Care Center both as a client and a volunteer. When our family encountered a difficult situation, the Oaks filled a void that no other program seemed to accomplish. The care we received was not only skilled but also loving; an uncommon yet vital combination for healing. We participated in the Life Skills program which resulted in rapid transformation of our family circumstance.

Our experience with the Oaks opened my eyes to the vast scope of services they provide and also the need for additional volunteers. My background is in adolescent counseling and so I was thrilled to join a team of volunteers from the Oaks who teach and minister to the young people at the local juvenile detention center. As with all the services that the Oaks provide, this is a crucial entity in building the health of families and our community. It is with great joy that I recommend the Oaks as a remarkable and vital service to all who are hurting and in need of healing.

Add itional funding would enable The Oaks to increase and more fully develop their already substantial program.

I first came in contact with Oaks several years ago as a mother going through a divorce with a small child and at the same time my mother was dying of cancer. My daughter is 13 now and is a beautiful, well adjusted teenager because of Oaks Family Care Center.

During major crisis and developmental milestones in mine and my daughter's life we have received services and counseling from the staff at Oaks.

The supervised visitation program helped in the reunification of my daughter with her father in a safe and comfortable environment. The Oaks puts the children first and helps parents cope.

I would expand the organization with more workers and more outreach.

When your teen is in crisis, it is hard to know what to do and where to turn. Feeling like we had very few options, we turned to the Oaks Family Care Center. There we received counseling, training, and family support that started us on a better path as a family. Not only could we apply the training we received to our teen, we learned how to change routines in our home that benefited all of us. And knowing that there were staff members keeping our family in prayer was a comfort as well. I am very thankful that the Oaks was there for us!

As a result of our contact with the Oaks, we were able to better meet the needs in our home for all of our family members, know what to do if things escalated again to a crisis point, and have a greater understanding of our teen.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not make any changes. The Oaks met the needs of our family at one of the lowest levels in our lives.
