WHO WE ARE
We are a nonprofit with the mission to help individuals overcome barriers, such as mental and physical disabilities or prior incarceration, to achieve personal and professional growth! We accomplish this by offering a diverse range of supports and individualized programming which assist individuals in becoming valued and contributing members of their community, breaking the cycle of dependency and isolation. With this person-centered philosophy, we have served over 26,000 individuals since 1961 and going strong!
We appreciate everyone who joined us during the #GoodGivingChallenge to help us raise funds that will allow OWL Center and ACES to provide services for even more individuals in our community who need assistance in breaking down barriers to employment!
