Equip People – Transform Communities

Our mission is to equip people with life skills in order to restore dignity and empower them to transform communities

Oaks Initiative is a North Carolina non-profit organization based in the Raleigh area (southwest Wake County). Our vision is to provide job mentoring, budgeting, and other basic life skills, as well as to partner with other local services and organizations


We believe we are called by God to help people of all ages find their own potential through learning life skills, discovering dignity in work, and seizing their own vision to transform their lives, families, and communities

OAKS stands for:

Ownership - Take Ownership of your past choices, current status, and future vision

 Accountability - Be Accountable to a mentor to pursue your vision

 Knowledge - Obtain Knowledge needed to fulfill your vision

 Service - Serve Others along your journey the way others have served you
