Our Community Our Kids Transforms Children's Lives in North Texas
OCOK Brings Community-Based Care to Region 3b.
What We Do and Why It Matters
Our Community Our Kids‘ (OCOK) organizational design leverages the strengths of community providers to best meet the needs of children, youth, and families in our catchment area. Through a contract with the State of Texas, OCOK is expanding Community-Based Care (CBC) into Region 3b, which comprises Erath, Hood, Johnson, Palo Pinto, Parker, Somervell, and Tarrant counties.
CBC is a new way of providing foster care services that gives local communities the flexibility and authority to improve the system. OCOK provides case management and family services that enable children to safely achieve permanency in their own home, with relatives, or through adoption.
