Oak Grove Institute Foundation
Support the kids of Oak Grove Center --the work we do today builds a better tomorrow! Build a better tomorrow today for Oak Grove.
Oak Grove Center is a nonprofit educational and residential center serving 200 at-risk and special needs children. Many of these kids suffer from physical and/or sexual abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, or other traumas. Children and youth are admitted with a variety of social, emotional, behavioral and medical problems. Many of the youth have school problems, family dysfunction and alcohol or substance abuse. We are fundraising to combine our love for running/walking with our desire to see the physical and social-emotional needs of Oak Grove students fulfilled. Oak Grove will open a new gymnasium multi-purpose room in October which will have an Occupational-Play therapy room for our autism program and children with special needs. The gym will also have recreation space and an Arts & Music Room. Arts and Sports help provide many needed opportunities for the kids to heal, grow and positively connect with others. Our fundraising efforts will go toward helping purchase toys, occupational therapy tools, sports equipment and art supplies for these deserving kids. Our staff are trained in PECS, DTT, TEACHH and Sensory techniques. We need your help for our special kids!
