About Us

Bridging The Gap

The Oconee Area Resource Council (OARC) is a local 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation that serves as the local decision-making body for the Georgia Family Connection. OARC identifies the needs of the community and works to fill those needs by combining resources and services. Our goal is to ensure that all residents of Oconee County will live in a healthy, safe and stable environment. To this end, we bring together community partners to develop, implement and evaluate programs that address the challenges facing Oconee County residents.
