Our Mission

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

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 willing to be accountable to a mentor to pursue your vision

Knowledge - Be willing to attain the knowledge you need to fulfill your vision

Service - Once you are able, be willing to serve others along your journey

Our vision is to offer community classes on job skills, budgeting, and other basic life skills, and coordinate and partner with other local services and organizations to bring those to our corner of the Raleigh area (southwest Wake and south Johnston counties).
