handyThe OUR Center relies on a robust support network from our community to assist people towards self-sufficiency.  Partnerships with over 15 different resource groups allow our participants to have a one-stop experience at the OUR Center without the inconvenience of visiting a different building for each need.  We never want any participant to feel as though they are alone.  Without the help of our many community partners, we would not be able to provide those in need with the resources needed to succeed.
