Meet our Staff


"Our programs help kids who are experiencing a difficult time in their lives. Please consider donating your time, energy or financial support to make a difference in a child's life in Oconee County. We could not do this without the help of our many volunteers and supporters. Good people are doing good things in Oconee County. Thank You!" 

- Ann Hester, Executive Director


"We recruit, train and pair caring adults with children who need a little extra support. Meeting weekly with a student gives both individual attention and encouragement, and can be invaluable during their formative years. Unfortunately, we have children on a waiting list. Please contact us to be a mentor." 
- Amanda Davis, Mentor Program Director


"We are always busy trying to find the resources necessary to support our programs. Part of my job is to shop wisely; to buy enough food to fill 5,200 bags of food to be distributed to students in Oconee County who do not have enough food to eat during the weekend. My sincere thanks to all those who make this program possible!"

- Linda Schroeder, Office Manager


 Our Heartfelt Thanks...

The Oconee Area Resource Council has played an instrumental role in the creation and support of programs that contribute to the quality of life in Oconee County. We are able to accomplish our goals by bringing organizations together to identify the needs of the community and work to fill those needs by combining resources and services. Our goal is that all residents of Oconee County will live in a healthy, safe and stable environment.

Our organization has always believed in the power of collaboration and prevention. Whether it is a student who might need a caring adult to guide them through a difficult time or a child who cannot concentrate on their school work because of hunger, they are all helped by early steps of prevention. We are grateful for the generosity of Oconee County Schools faculty and staff, Board of Commissioners, our local businesses, individuals and our program partners for supporting our efforts. We are also grateful for the kindness and dedication of the many volunteers who contribute their time, energy and skills to make this organization a success.
