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.

We are so grateful to the Pilot Club of Oconee County for providing helmets for Adopt A Family again this year! Not only do their volunteers fund the helmets, they purchase them considering the age and size of the child, and label them for us. We are so blessed to give our families such high quality helmets to go along with their bikes this Christmas! ... See MoreSee Less

Many thanks for your generosity.

Adopt A Family 2023 is a wrap! We couldn’t have done without so many of you. It’s hard to put into words what Adopt A Family means for our families, but this message we received sums it up well! “I’m speechless at the generosity of you all, and the community. I had no idea at what all we'd receive, to think of something like cooking spray. Wow! I'm shocked. I can't express how thankful and blessed we are. You all definitely took a lot of worry from me and I'm very grateful. I'm now excited for Christmas as before today I was kinda dreading it. I can't wait to do the box of things with her and to see her face when I show her those things and Christmas morning.” ... See MoreSee Less
